There were lots of clues given at the Roadmap presentation at Siggraph last
July that workflow for more traditional animation workflows are a major
part of the H16 plan but I don't think Houdini will ever be a direct
Maya/XSI replacement. It's procedural 'operating system' like core is just
too different for that to ever happen. But it's ability to be more friendly
for direct modeling and non procedural animation workflows definitely seem
to be part of SideFX's plan and I have a feeling much of this will be
unveiled at the H16 launch.
