 Many mlpack methods use trees, but there is not a standardized API for
 what the constructors for the trees look like.  We should have a
 consistent constructor which takes an instantiated metric, in addition to
 one that does not:

 TreeType(MatType& dataset);
 TreeType(MatType& dataset, MetricType& metric);

 Then any optional tree-specific parameters can be added to those

 Remember that reverse-incompatible changes should not be made until 1.1.0
 is released.
