[Neuroimaging] Announcing Quickshear v1.0

Hi all,

Quickshear[0] is a defacing utility that calculates the convex-hull of a
skull-stripped brain to split the volume into brain and face regions, and
then zeros out the face region of an anatomical image. It comes out of a
computer security lab that had a brief flurry of activity in neuroimaging
privacy a few years back.

I contacted the authors a couple weeks ago to try it out, and they kindly
agreed to let me publish it. As it is a standalone program, rather than
immediately try to include it in existing projects, I've made some very
minor modifications and released their code as v1.0 to stand as a reference

Beyond this reference implementation, though, I'm not committed to the idea
that it must be a separate project; while I'm happy to maintain it in this
form, if a larger existing project would like to include it, that would
only lower the barrier to use.
