The plugin version of my corrective blend shape solution is finished. Hope you will enjoy it. If or not - I'm looking forward to your response.

Download new plugin correctiveShape v1.0 for Maya 5.0 / 6.0 (Windows)
 
Download MEL script BSpiritCorrectiveShape v1.2
 
The process of creating a corrective blend shape via the plugin takes three main steps. One by the user and two internal:
 
First: Your turn. Execute the correctiveShapeCmd via command or the plugin UI. Flags may be used for advanced settings.
 
correctiveShape -showUI
 
Second: Internal command processing of every vertice. Local position and world position are compared, the results lead to a new vector space calculated by a matrix equitation. After a few c++ tweaks this will take a time span of miliseconds up to a few seconds (500k approved).
 
Third: A new correctiveShape deformer is created. It takes all vertex movements of the sculpture mesh and translates them into the appropriate space. This is done in realtime. For modelling in resolutions of 100k+ you can easily set the envelope to zero to suppress simultaneous computation.
 
With this plugin corrective blend shapes should be no more a problem. It may also be used for eliminating other deformer effects, for blend shape substracting and much more. Write me if you find new operational areas.
 
But pictures say more than words:
 
real world example why this plugin?
