unfortunately, it's not yet possible, but --- believe or not ---
this has been on my TODO list for 'cluster' (the package) for a
while now -- and your wish definitely raises the priority!
I want to do some checking for user input errors there, but this
is definitely not so much of work to do...

-> do nag me about it at least once a month till it'done.. ;-)

You're welcome,
