Ok, I did it because of 2 reasons:
1) Code that used Body assumed that it is not null, therefore reference object is the best for it.
2) Using of *PBody introduced lot of changes, almost each line was affected what was not very reasonable because of first reason for me.
But having another variable for the same object also not very good, here I agree. I renamed PBody to Body then, since PBody name appeared because Body was busy, and its also consistent with other code which uses Body name for pointers to SymbolBody.
