I think so too. But they haven't asked yet. ;-) Really, my guess is the
basic features
need to completed before they consider add it in. But since I can only work
on
this on my spare time, the process might take a while.

ok, I will see what I can do. maybe a command like "export_mesh <filename>"
?

Sounds interesting. Is it the displacement mapping you want? (such as a 3-d
flower
print on a vase.)

It is good to know this. If this exists, it will be easy to get subdivision
working
on other objects upon this package. I will look into the possibilitties.
