In both cases, I included those things just because they were options
in ANN, rather than any real need on my part.
The things that I found important (and lacking in some of the other
many kd_tree implementations) were the ability to select an arbitrary
number of nearest neighbors returned and specifying a max search radius.
I can see that having a choice of splitting rules may be handy for
unusual point distributions, but I have always used this on fairly
regularly spaced data.
