Anything I could do to bring back PLY support ?

I see the importer still in the source code tree.

But somehow ... it does not make the cut to the installer.

I use PLY import a lot to get files from MeshLab to wings3d and it also has a lot of traction in the scientific/academic circles.

It's running fairly well on my machine. Just found a line endings bug ... but easy to fix in my mind.

Please ... I'd like to support this to get it re-included for a few releases.

Dan ?

A pullrequest would help with fixes and inclusion in the makefile, release system

OK ... figured I could just wait on this one.

Dan ... any idea how the ply code stays but does not get released ? Is there a lot of that in the codebase ?

I guess I'm wonding if someone had a specific issue/problem with .ply and that's how it got dropped. Maybe I should just check the 2.0.2 release for completeness here ... BRB.

I implemented ply support for my testing and never intended it to be released.
It's a large hack for my own usage, worked on the models I needed.
