It might make sense to put it Boost.Stat, ie, a statistics package for boost.
There are some basic stuff in the sandbox in the "stat" directory, but
I have stalled development currently (for several reasons, most notably lack of
time). My next step would have been to add generic matrix algorithms to
implement stuff like inversion. Anyway, I feel kd-trees and metrics
would fit nicely into this lib.
