    During our sprint last week, Rémi Emonet and Raniere Silva started
    exploring the idea of using off-the-shelf package managers to manage
    lesson material [1,2] so that something like:

    $ conda install barba-12-steps-navier-stokes

    will do what it should.  I'm really excited by the idea, and hope to
    put some time into it once September rolls around - if people are
    interested, I'll send a note to this list once work gets under way.

Yeah - what I *actually* want to be able to do is:

$ conda install doi://10.1371/journal.pone.0103452

and get the source of the paper, the code, the libraries the code 
depends on (in a safely sandboxed environment), and either the data or 
links to the data (or torrent files for the data).  Lessons are then 
just a special case...
