[scikit-learn] Contributing ST-DBSCAN to the clustering module

It looks like the paper proposes two unrelated improvements, right?
We don't really include algorithms that are specific for time-series 
data or spatio-temporal data.
How does the other improvement compare against hdbscan?

There is many many different clustering algorithms out there, and I 
don't think we want to implement
all of them.
It's not entirely clear to me when this algorithm improves over what we 
have already.

Btw, adding a new algorithm to scikit-learn is probably not a good idea 
for a first contribution, see
