ODE is, generally, a velocity space solver, not a position space solver, 
so "finding a position" where the objects are not intersecting anything 
else isn't a natural thing to express in the solver. One reason for this 
is that there may actually be no such position, in the case of objects 
penetrating more than one other object.
