/**
Manages a collection of AdSystems & AdInteractionSystems, 
and the relationships between them. There are two possible relationships types
"interacts" and "contains" and every pairwise relationship is represented by an AdRelationshipObject.
For every AdSystem that interacts with another an AdInteractionSystem is created.
For every AdSystem that contains others AdSystemNode inserts them into it - 
this requires that the containing AdSystems dataSource supports insertion by implementing
the setExclusionPoints:radius method.

In addition AdSystemNode also keeps track of the status (See AdSystem and AdInteractionSystem for the
allowed states) of each of the consituent systems. When the status of a subsystem changes AdSystemNode 
updates the active, inactive and passive lists taking into account interaction systems that are affected by 
the change i.e. if an AdSystem status becomes "inactive" it will have the effect of changing the 
status to "inactive" of any AdInteractionSystems that it was involved in. It will then post an
AdSystemStatusDidChangeNotification (see below for more information).

Notifications

AdSystemNode posts an AdSystemStatusDidChangeNotification for the original subsystem whose status changed.
The object of the notification is the AdSystemNode and it contains a userInfo dict with the
following self explanatory keys: @"Subsystem", @"PreviousStatus", @"CurrentStatus". 
Note no notification will be sent for subsequent changes involving AdInteractionSystems. 
If necessary, objects that observe this notification should use the "interactionSystemsForAdSystem:" method to
find which interaction systems were affected (only necessary when a AdSystem becomes inactive).

\todo On creation of the systems and before creating the interactions AdSystemNode should remove
all translational degrees of freedom.
\todo Add "rigid" as a system status
