	AFAIK rat is the recommended solution for texture maps in mantra.  OExr is 
supported as an input/output format, but I'm unsure if there's any options to 
take advantage of all the various styles of output.  Is there a particular 
reason you want to use Oexr for this, apart from the size savings of going 
half float over float?
