I'd be willing to maintain the cluster module if no one else wishes to. I began a Cython rewrite of the cluster.vq module which is still in the repository though currently unused. I plan to continue on that anyway (along with kmeans, of which I already have a fast Cython implementation written), so I wouldn't mind becoming the guardian of that chunk of the codebase.
