>From what I have seen I agree with Michael.   I'm not sure if the muscle systems in Juan Pablo Bouza's amazing Blenrig could work with the cloth system and at the very least, it would be a major headache converting it if it were possible.   For reference: (Nudity warning)
Blenrig - http://www.jpbouza.com.ar/ESP2/descargas/blenrig-3/id/en
I also don't see the harm in having multiple ways to skin a cat.   Different people have different workflows, and though the results may be similar, some may be very familiar with the soft body system but not with the cloth system.    I do understand trying to cut down on bloat, but I do know that when software evolves and totally slaughters my workflow it does not leave me a happy camper.   

Anyway, Just my 2 cents.
