Did you compare against SIOX as in the master branch or against the
improved version that resulted from last year's GSoC ? It would also be
interesting if you could benchmark your algorithm using the benchmark
proposed in "GrabCut": interactive foreground extraction using iterated
graph cuts" published in the Proceedings of the 2004 SIGGRAPH
Conference. There's a Python script shipped with the GIMP source code
that does this with the SIOX tool.

In my opinion we should at this point concentrate on merging last year's
work on the SIOX tool. If we start to add other segmentation methods
before this work is merged, then it will become very difficult to ever
get the soc-2009-siox-drb branch merged.
