I wish I had a student competent in python for the project. sadly I do not.
I know there is a way in brainstorm... though I have put off doing so because I like MNE and am not thrilled with the large footprint of Brainstorm...
It might be nice if there was some hack ... to use brainstorm for just one stage and then go back to MNE or vice versa.
