[R] clustering indexes/indices

I read a post back in April 2000 that wondered if it was possible to use
hclust objects in cclust, so to take advantage of the clustIndex function
to compute indexes that can be used to estimate the "true" number of
clusters in the data.

The answer there was that this was not possible at the moment, but that an
unification of the clustering classes from different packages was probably
a good idea for the future.

I was wondering if this had happened in the meantime, or if it is planned for
the near future.

Thank you!
