[scikit-learn] Does sklearn contain xgboost?

XGBoost is a specific implementation of gradient boosting trees, so 
strictly speaking scikit-learn cannot "contain" XGBoost. That being said:

- XGBoost has a scikit-learn compatible API: 
So does LightGBM, another fast implementation of gradient boosting trees.

- scikit-learn implements "vanilla" gradient boosting 

- There's an open PR in scikit learn (still very WIP) that implements 
the same kind of optimization that XGBoost and LightGBM use, which will 
make GBDT faster https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/pull/12807.
