Is there any way to allow one to set the eccentricity of an orbit greater than 1? I mean besides faffing around with instentaneous velocities or carefully firing the object from the right place. I wants my hyperbolae!

Great question.

I've just added this to our task list for the 2012 major update.
No promises, but I will eventually investigate and see if this will work.
