I made the same judgement call with clinod (command line NoD), which needs a single binary tool 'batchman' (either on the path or next to the clinod install) from a 3rd party package, the Stuttgart Neural Network Simulator (SNNS). http://testtoolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu/view/peterjc/clinod/ I could have tried to work out how to download and install the whole of the SNNS package, but that in turn would trigger more dependencies. Instead I am just installing batchman by putting it in the clinod $INSTALL_DIR - this is far simpler and less likely to break. (If it turns out in six months time that some other Galaxy Tools also use bits of SNNS, then I'd reconsider this choice.)
