Dear all,

Thanks to initial work by Rashad, extensively completed by Markus Metz,
we now have a new addon module which allows to segment images into
so-called superpixels, using the SLIC algorithm as proposed by Achanta
et al [1].

The module uses a spatially constrained kmeans algorithm to group
neighboring pixels into larger ensemble, the "superpixels". These
superpixels can be used as a specific form of segmentation by itself,
or they can be used as seed input to i.segment's region-growing

Thank you very much to the two authors for the great work !
