I use GTO format every day, and is really useful, at least is as flexible as
bgeo in terms of been able to attach any kind of data to your geometry.
I also think is a file format that would be good to have in houdini out of
the box, many facilities are using it and always makes things easier for
Houdini to be implemented in a pipeline.
