Great attitude!

You may be interested in this;

This is a initiative by Steve(Radarsat1) to allow us to create, share and
test user-generated UGen's, to eventually be merged with the main release
if/when some are stable, useful and coherent. This is in a early stage but
it may still be of interest to you.

Way cool, is if I understand this correctly what you are aiming at here is a
UGen that models the effect of physics on sounds (so basically acoustics)?
Or will this be a more general thing, for example to use emulations of
physical processes likes mass-spring systems, collisions, etc to generate
controler data as well?

Either way; a lovely initiative, I hope you will develop this further and
keep us up to date.
