The position2d CAR_CMD should have the following
semantics: absolute velocity control for X, and
relative position control for theta.

This needs to be documented, and the implementation of
CAR_CMD in stage needs to be fixed.

As an aside, another useful control mode is tv/rp:
absolute velocity control for X, and absolute position
control for theta. We might add another command for
this control mode.

    My original intention with the CAR_CMD type was to support tv/rp mode. Should we drop CAR in favour of a more distinctive name for the two alternative options?
