The current code is prepared for multiple algorithms as backend for the
segmentation tool. It's not foreseen that you switch between algorithms,
but that you pick one, but even that could probably be changed. As there
is currently only the SIOX backend, there's no choice of algorithm
exposed in the user interface. But it wouldn't be too difficult to add a
toggle or combo-box for that. The question is how much does the user
interaction depend on the chosen algorithm?
