Not just that. For nipype, imagine a user sees that the package install
fails. _I_ don't want
them to go to neurostars -- even if nipype wants that. I want that bug,
because it is fairly clear that _I_ should deal with
it. I can do that better and quicker, if there is a single forum (or even
better a bug tracker) for all these bugs
-- regardless of the actual software in question. For everything else, I
prefer a pass-through of some
kind that neither burdens me, nor the user.
