I'll have a look at documenting the old PhysicsConstraints module.

As a side note, my current efforts for better rigid body constraints
support, including upcoming blending between ragdolls and skeletal animation
(armatures) are into the related open source GameKit effort. It can play
Blender.blend files directly.

Hopefully GameKit matures this year to a point that it can be a worthy
alternative .blend game player, included in Blender distributions next to
