Hey Rob,

I'm pretty sure XSI exports mdd caches? With a plugin maybe? So save out a
.obj, plus a matched mdd cache.. use file sop + mdd sop and you've at least
the functionality going down pc2 gives you. Of course, there's an mdd rop if
you want to standadise and use same format for houdini->xsi..
