heh, and you should note that grid based collider is on "todo list"
since yade was started (really). So it was not an ignored problem. It
was from beginning just like now: "I should try implementing grid
collider, but now I have no time for that and I have some working
collider.". You can call that 'prioritizing stuff due to lack of
time' ;P

those memories make me smile :)
