Since the thread is quite a bit old, (and I have been in vacation back then),
could you summarize what you think about it?

When skimming through the thread I got the impression that, yes,
it was worth to "centralize" such a method in 'stats' rather
than have different slightly incompatible versions in different
other packages.
This is of tangential interest to me as I have been slightly
involved with reorder.dendrogram()
