better answer.

No one as far as I know.

Have you tried to figure out if Bullet 3 supports all the features we
need? As I understand from reading the readme.txt, it seems to only
support a subset of collision shapes and constraints, and softbodies
don't seem to be part of the API (although there is a demo). Maybe
it's possible to adapt all that, but it would be good to figure that
out before starting to integrate it.

For the game engine, Bullet integration seems to be in these files:

I don't think there is any documentation about this integration
specifically, you'll probably have to read the code and try to figure
out how things fit together.

Probably there are quite a few, but I don't know which one is good,
maybe someone else can give a recommendation.
