Lukas, you mentioned a physics overhaul being planned. I remember some time ago reading about possibly using an existing library like PhysBAM  for this. I don't know what was eventually decided on this (if anything), but while this would be a major undertaking, perhaps making a start at integrating something like this could be a viable option for the project?
(I am looking at this kind of in the sense of integrating libmv, but may be completely off on the complexity of this.)
