It's very useful and common that we assume Background:="0"-value
ndimage and matlab do so.
I don't know why skimage doesn't.
Regarding connectedness, both matlab and ndimage have options of 8-
connect and 4-connect.
Meantime skimage has only 8-connect.
Why don't we add 4-connect as an option?
Regarding number of labeled regions (not counting the background
regions), again matlab and ndimage compute and return it.
Why don't we add it to the skimage, as it would be very useful to
I suspect the reason why the skimage doesn't is because it currently
has a vague notion on the background regions, isn't it?
