pybox2d svn r51

So, I figured I'd detail some of the changes made to pybox2d a bit more in detail here. Here's the changes in r51:

* RayCasts working!
* Fixed some cvar confusion:
Since you can't do dir(box2d.cvar), I added a (mostly complete) list in box2d.cvars:
for c in box2d.cvars:
print c, getattr(box2d.cvar, c)

will show plenty of information:
b2_pi 3.14159274101
b2_maxManifoldPoints 2
b2_maxPolygonVertices 8
b2_maxProxies 512
b2_maxPairs 4096
b2_linearSlop 0.00499999988824
b2_angularSlop 0.0349065884948
b2_toiSlop 0.0399999991059
b2_maxTOIContactsPerIsland 32
b2_maxTOIJointsPerIsland 32
b2_velocityThreshold 1.0
b2_maxLinearCorrection 0.20000000298
b2_maxAngularCorrection 0.139626353979
b2_maxLinearVelocity 200.0

pybox2d svn up until r50

(pictured: running on the Pyglet 1.1 testbed)

Recent changes up to r50: Allow for CXXFLAGS to be used (OS X -> Universal Binaries, Linux -> x64) (r47)
TestSegment works (thanks for the tip, neonnds!) (r35)
Backported the testbed to pyglet 1.1. (r50)
test_BreakableBody and TriangleMesh added (thanks nimodo!) (forum post)
OS X guide added (thanks neonnds!)
Added more comments, documentation, fixes. Various cleanups.

Everything should now be updated to Box2D r172 (r162 typo in commit log), with new Step function and slingshot in the testbed.
