I am currently working on that stuff together with Vivian Meazza.

There is a proof of concept code available at the moment.
I sent this privatly to him because of the mail size limit on this list.

This case kind of works for the arrester wires. The braking force is just 
hacked into the gear code. But this is just to be able to test.

At first I think we sould build up the environment in flightgear to make that 
work. Later implement the physics in more detail.
