Probably not teh answer you want to hear but a few years ago when I was 
going back and forth between blender and maya I wrote a simple vertex 
colour ascii format file and exporter's /importers for blender and maya..

sadly I don't have the code and even if i did blender side would be 2.49 
so would need scrapping and starting again and maya side would need to 
be re-written for max/softimage anyway..

just saying it's not too hard to 'roll you own' solution in some of 
these cases..

Ultimately I'd like full featured fbx IO but until then...
