* @mainpage IK - Blender inverse kinematics module.
*
* @section about About the IK module
*
* This module allows you to create segments and form them into
* tree. You can then define a goal points that the end of a given
* segment should attempt to reach - an inverse kinematic problem.
* This module will then modify the segments in the tree in order
* to get the as near as possible to the goal. This solver uses an
* inverse jacobian method to find a solution.
*
* @section issues Known issues with this IK solver.
*
* - There is currently no support for joint constraints in the
* solver. This is within the realms of possibility - please ask
* if this functionality is required.
* - The solver is slow, inverse jacobian methods in general give
* 'smooth' solutions and the method is also very flexible, it
* does not rely on specific angle parameterization and can be
* extended to deal with different joint types and joint
* constraints. However it is not suitable for real time use.
* Other algorithms exist which are more suitable for real-time
* applications, please ask if this functionality is required.
*
* @section dependencies Dependencies
*
* This module only depends on Moto.

/**
* IK_Segment defines a single segment of an IK tree.
* - Individual segments are always defined in local coordinates.
* - The segment is assumed to be oriented in the local
* y-direction.
* - start is the start of the segment relative to the end
* of the parent segment.
* - rest_basis is a column major matrix defineding the rest
* position (w.r.t. which the limits are defined), must
* be a pure rotation
* - basis is a column major matrix defining the current change
* from the rest basis, must be a pure rotation
* - length is the length of the bone.
*
* - basis_change and translation_change respectively define
* the change in rotation or translation. basis_change is a
* column major 3x3 matrix.
*
* The local transformation is then defined as:
* start * rest_basis * basis * basis_change * translation_change * translate(0,length,0)
