I made some overtures in private email, mentioning the possibility of code
contribution, given the apparently high overlap between the 2 projects.  I
like the idea of 'official' bindings because they are more likely to be kept
current during ongoing development, rather than having to play catchup
against the official releases.  And might attract more contributors due to
the proximity to the 'parent' project.  I interpreted the ambivalence
encountered as an indication that the former course would be taken, in part
because most of the work is apparently already done and just needs testing.

So it most definitely will be worth using OdeDotNet und Tao.Ode in the

If you want to use bindings that map just about all of the 0.6 API, then
yes.  (Well, Tao.Ode, anyway.  OdeDotNet needs a little attention from its

And a little googling turned up the following, though it's out of date
API-wise.  http://www.pepperboy.net/ode.asp

Of course, there's always the option of contributing to one of the existing
efforts to help improve them, rather than casting about for an
implementation that may be better in some undefinable way.
