It depends. I think Corran's proposal to put a simple and fast batch
SOM algorithm in scipy.cluster.vq and more general variations of the
SOM algorithm in the scikit is a good approach.
In general, it is OK to improve the cluster package in scipy. For
instance, I think Damian's hierarchical clustering code
is a good example of what should go into scipy.cluster.
