yes, exactly. The interaction may be potential (i.e.
Ig2_Sphere_Sphere_ScGeom returning false) for long time, i.e. !
c->interactionGeometry. Once there is "real" contact, the functor
creates the object (scm->shared_ptr<ScGeom>(newScGeom()) and then return

(The logic will be described in the programmer's manual as well, perhaps
over christmas.)
