If you only need point masses, msd is much faster, because ODE always
does rigid body simulatons. If you need rigid bodies, then msd doesn't
cut it and you need ODE (or something like that).

100-150 bodies in ODE are not that much of a problem, but you need a
fast machine already.

I don't really use pmpd anymore, so I cannot comment on that, but msd
is faster than pmpd as well, collision detection is trickier, though.
