What actual clustering algorithm are you using here?

Also, would it be possible to have some more documentation there in
general?  At the very least, in your next release explain what a
dendogram is and why someone would want to use your package (I had to do
some quick wikipedia looking to refresh my memory on what dendogram,
etc. were to get an understanding of what it does).
