That was the plan. So what do people think? Useful? Or just more
clutter that belongs in a wrapper?

FYI, to get things working in the short term, I have added two methods:

  void dBodyCopyPosition(dBodyID b, dVector3 pos);
  void dBodyCopyOrientation(dBodyID b, dQuaternion quat);

...which allow me to get the body state in .NET (and presumably other
pointer-less environments) without resorting to unsafe code. The f/d
approach, if we take it, would supersede these methods and I will pull
them out.
