FreeImage library downloading from github, alpha version: https://github.com/zachrahan/scikits-image/blob/freeimage-install-libs/skima...
No idea how best to bake this in to bdist or install distutils commands.
That'll do the trick! Then we just need to do a check for whether the file has already been downloaded, and to timeout after a while. Then we can include it safely in the setup.py command.
OK, timeouts and checks added to the above. It's not an optional flag whether to raise an error if no file for the host platform is found... I thought that might be useful? Anyway, now to figure out how to add it to setup.py install and setup.py bdist -- any ideas? Zach
