Sorry - I am not sure what you mean.  The problem here is the user who
assumes that something bad happened when running easy_install - which
is what happened in the case of nipy.  Is there some way of silencing
this (specific) warning from within setup.py?

Which import did you mean?  I think I need all the imports I'm using
in the example minimal package.  I'm not explicitly importing logging
for example.

Thanks for looking into it...

Cheers,

Matthew
