[ODE] Changing time step realtime?

You will have an instability when you change the time step, but that's a 
one-time event in this case (i e, you might want to double the step, or 
add 0.01 to it, or something, if the CPU is too slow). Things lying on 
the floor will "bounce" the step after you change the time step, but if 
the time step is then consistent, they will settle down (assuming you 
dampen the system properly in general).
