I agree in principle that this would be  a nice thing to have. However, 
from a practical POV I'd rather spend few bucks on Silo than have SESI 
invest time in this kind of tools.
That being said, while I agree that for organic modeling there are far 
better tools already mentioned, I have to say that we use Houdini for 
modeling quite successfully for a variety of tasks (from mobile phones 
to cartoon characters).
What I strongly agree is that SESI *should* actually spend some time and 
fix some basic stuff which doesn't work well and it should (for example, 
selecting in the viewport).


> I would vote for a special modelling environment within houdni, such as a modelSop node. When you dive into it you can model and paint in an artistic and non historic way(apart from an undo of course), giving you access to good quality polymodelling tools while mainting any custom houdini attributes
