[Sidefx-houdini-list] Getting other point attributes in POP VOPs

On the Inputs tab of the POP VOP, you can set the geometry which can be 
referenced as the First thru Fourth inputs from the GetAttribute VOP.  
To reference the current geometry you can just choose "Myself" or 
"Myself (No Reads from Outputs)" if you're not reading the same 
attributes you're outputting.

Note that these options cook any referenced SOPs before executing any 
VEX, making them generally faster than the op: syntax which I believe 
requires locking the first time it's accessed from VEX.
