[Sidefx-houdini-list] maya .ma SOP

I haven't heard of anybody doing this. I considered doing something like this,
it seems likely to be a difficult if not impossible trick to compile  
an HDK dso that Houdini loads that also includes whatever libraries  
Maya needs to open an .ma and deform geometry.

I thought it would be the right way to do it, but I never had the time  
to tinker, and I had already realized you couldn't make significant  
income selling it. So I just gave up without trying.

It might be possible to compile an inbetween DSO- the HDK .so would  
link to it, and Maya would link to it, and you might be able to  
compile it with a compatible subset of libraries...

seems like a worthy thing, if you can do it.
