on top of that, remember issue on Durian with Hair. I did propose some
papers a while back and talked about it with Daniel who thought there were
good and as I recall not that hard to implement in the actual Blender
structure. (as far as for the phyiscs math stretch stuff :p )

if anyone is interested in that, could be cool no ?
