It's really simple and quick to make your own nodes and plugins using python in Maya!
Here's my own locator and manipulator, I just modified the existing footPrintManip scripted plugin that comes in the Maya Devkit. Another advantage of a scripted plugin is that you don't need to recompile it when using in different Maya versions.
The manipulator sets an attribute that you can connect with anything you need, you can also use the channelbox to modify it. When the user stretches too much, it's locator gets painted to say: "hey, you're going too far!"
