[Neuroimaging] Python 2x or 3x?

Hi Nina,

I would recommend starting with Python 3.x at this point.  Although it took
several years, most scientific python packages now support both 2.7 and 3.x
at this point, so there is no real downside to starting with 3.  Nibabel is
definitely the way to go in terms of working with a range of neuroimaging
file formats on the python side.  In terms of working across different
APIs, that sounds like a fit to nipype which already has wrappers for many
software packages.
