      Description

      When working with Mahout text clustering I find that I keep writing code similar to the contents of

      public static String getTopFeatures(Cluster cluster, String[] dictionary, int numTerms)

      in ClusterDumper in order to determine cluster labels.

      I think it would be useful if (parts of) this code are added to the cluster or vector API so that you could do something like

      Cluster cluster = ... // get the cluster from seq file iterable
      String clusterLabel = cluster.getTopTerms(1, dictionary); // Do something with the label

      I think this would make it easier to export and post-process clustering results, like indexing or storing them elsewhere.

      Thoughts?
