Issue #1305 resolved
Other functions in LOVE's API which return lists of things are not in the format of "getThingList" but "getThings", i.e. plural nouns.
love.filesystem.getDirectoryItems love.graphics.getCanvasFormats love.joystick.getJoysticks love.window.getFullscreenModes love.touch.getTouches love.audio.getActiveEffects
So, I would suggest that functions in the physics module could be renamed to be consistent with this format:
World:getBodyList -> getBodies World/Body:getContactList -> getContacts World/Body:getJointList -> getJoints Body:getFixtureList -> Body:getFixtures
