An indication of how important a given force is in the overall composite force
acting on a given object. Certain integrators will use this information to
optimize the efficiency of evaluating the equations of motion during propagation of forces.

Public Enumeration RoleOfForce
public enum class RoleOfForce
Indicates that a particular force dominates the force resultant and is simple to compute.
For instance, in orbital equations of motion, two body gravity is often the principal force
and all others are perturbations.
Indicates that a particular force is a perturbation added to the principal force
(or in rare cases, principal forces). Such forces usually have a small effect on
the overall force but can be expensive to compute.
Indicates that a particular force contains both a principal component representing the first-order
effects and more complex perturbation effects. Usually, this role is treated as a principal force
for most purposes but is intended to be broken into its components when creating evaluators.
