I'll be using this for the Contest #8, so general concepts would be better than actual source code (unless the source is general... *shrug*).
You could look in to Verlet integration. It's nice, fast, and most importantly, simple.
Thanks! I did a quick google search and found this which seems to sum everything up pretty well. I'll try to implement it in Python in a bit Smile
Interesting, this is some pretty cool stuff! I'll have to look into this particular algorithm myself at some point.
While we're on the subject, I may as well post this:

It's a 3D implementation of verlet I wrote a while ago. I'd post the source too but...
