Integrate FARSIGHT with ImageJ

 FARSIGHT is a project for automated segmentation (with user-guided error correction) of microscopy data. It is built in C++ and Python, leveraging  ITK, the Insight Segmentation & Registration Toolkit, and  VTK, the Visualization Toolkit.

We would like to provide interoperability between ImageJ and the FARSIGHT environment, to allow use of FARSIGHT's automated segmentation algorithms within ImageJ as painlessly as possible. The most straightforward way to accomplish this goal will probably be with a Java layer around FARSIGHT using a wrapping technology such as  SWIG. ITK already has a  Java wrapping using CableSWIG, a variant of SWIG, so hopefully we can pursue a similar approach.

Leveraging ITK from ImageJ is a worthwhile goal, but pursuing FARSIGHT-specific integration is not a priority.
