I got stuck with this problem a while ago, but I exported the .obj format
and realized it's just a mesh2 in different syntax.  Lately I've just been
using a simple little shell script that is horribly inefficient but does
the trick.  It would be very simple and much more efficient to write a
little converter in c or something, but if you have access to a unix-like
system it works although it might combine all objects together.  It should
handle uv-mapping and normals without a problem.  You just have to make
sure it's triangulated when exported.

Yes, I know it couldn't be much worse, but it's worked for me.
