maya2egg support for Maya 8

Hi all,
I am trying to use the graphical front end for maya2egg with Maya 8. Instead of getting the .egg file that I was expecting, I got a copy of my .mb at the location of my original file. I searched to see if anyone else had similar issue with Maya 8 but did not find anything. Is Maya 8 supported and if not can anybody suggest a work around?

Thanks in Advance!

How did you invoke maya2egg then?
