What about a Physics module? Some sort of Sound/Music Manager might also 
be worth consideration (at least to the point of making sure we have 
builtin 'hooks' for people wanting to supply their own Sound/Music 
module).

I'll volunteer to assist you with any "grunt" work associated with that 
(or grunt work associated with anything else, for that matter =) ). I 
(personally) may be of some minor help in coding, but my coding skills 
are, generally speaking, too high-level for a project like this. I'm sure 
I'll have plenty of opinions to offer on design issues, though. <g>
