[kde-edu]: Step: interactive physical simulator

Hello !

I'll definitely take a look at Physiks code. Merging is a very good
idea - working  together on one project we can do much more.

Original goal of Step is interactive construction and running of
simulation (however StepCore can be used standalone as simulation
library), but scripting can be very interesting feature, especially if
scripting and interactive editing can be combined.

I think we should look at each others code and than talk about merging
with more details.

       Best Regards,
