Sorry to resurrect this age-old thread, but has there been any work on
integrating this sort of general island disabling system into ODE

I've finally got a per-ragdoll solution working, but of course, the
very nanosecond I "enlarge" the island via contact joints to other
dynamic objects, then all the same jittery problems return.  Seems a
more general solution is needed.
