I'm also to blame for it... currently my energy gets drained too much  
with all kinds of foundation bizz... and the SB project was scheduled  
to start after 2.36.

As agreed on, Jens would work on the math and simulation part for all  
of it, and come back to me for integration of the system in Blender.  
Math indeed seems to be fine, so now its just the art of making it  
simply work! :)

Jens will make a short tech doc on what the actual settings now do  
(exact technical definitions not user-friendly talk), so I can use that  
for the next step. Goal still is to have a generic system, which can be  
used for any object type in blender.
