[pymvpa] Searchlights and additional measures

Hi, Yaroslav,
Thanks.  Perhaps I was not clear.
I would certainly save all performance rates, I am familiar with
chance-distributions in the brain :-)
What I meant is that if the searchlight function is not currently set
up to allow me to save all the additional parameters what I want for a
large number of searchlights (e.g., weights, confusion matrices), then
it might be easier to create an ROI containing my voxels of interest
and then rerun those classifiers without the searchlight function.
But, your suggestion of mapper.getInId makes sense.
