Using custom ROP HDA in other contexts

Hello!

Regarding the pattern in Houdini where ROP nodes are available in other contexts for rendering (ROP Geometry Output in SOPs, USD ROP in LOPs, etc.) --

Is there a way to achieve this without using the HDK? i.e. Creating an HDA, either by making a ROP HDA available in LOPs (what I'm interested in), or making a LOP HDA behave like a ROP?

I'm aware I can promote the render buttons off of a ROP inside an HDA to trigger their rendering, but I'd like it instead to really behave like a ROP, so that things like the render() method is available on the node in Python, etc.

Is this possible, or is the HDK my only option?

Ha, I'm trying to find this information too. I didn't think about using the HDK for this. Thanks, good to know. Although I'm not sure I want to go this route.

I guess we're out of luck then but let me know if you had any updates on this.
