Can you store within .c4d/general caching question

Hello all,

I know there are several of us petitioning for guidance at the moment, so thanks for any time spent!

So, I've set up a tag plugin that writes an object's global matrix per frame to a hyperfile, and then reads it back to effectively bake/cache the object.  It's like cappucino without the key-frames.

Is it possible to keep this information internal (a la mograph cache tag), instead of writing it out to filename.file?  I've looked quite a bit, but wanted to ask here before I gave up.

I have seen a few plugins write to User Data into a multi-line string. That way the text is always with the c4d file.
