I don't see the problem :-) since the INC file of the UDO/INC pair can
contain any POV-Ray code, even #includes or even macros (POV 3.1 etc.)

The only work would be to write the UDO file, with a nice and suitable
representation of the object in Moray (made up out of vertices and
connecting edges).
I guess that writing such an UDO even for a complex object can be faster
than going through a lot of conversion steps.
