Hi Eric,

I was playing with Bio.Cluster recently and noticed that trees generated 
by that module are not compatible with Bio.Phylo. I think it would be 
useful if output from Cluster could be manipulated with Phylo.

At first glance, it doesn't seem like it would be that tricky to add a 
method of converting Bio.Cluster tree objects to Bio.Phylo tree objects, 
and I would be happy to work on this. Before making an attempt, I wanted 
to get your feedback on whether you think this would be useful and if 
you had anything similar in the works already.
