I need to check. I once had one (based on somebody else's submission to 
Fedora), but don't know if I still have it around, because I don't have 
any use for it.

OK, this is the first indication I read about it. No idea, how old this 
piece of information is (the page claims to have been modified Sep 20), 
in particular if this is new or outdated.

Fact is Coin3d's development has been very, very silent through this 
year, with their mailing lists appearing to be almost dead
(c.f. https://mailman.coin3d.org/pipermail/coin-discuss/)
