>> It's worth pointing out that we have as-yet-unmerged code from Summer of Code implementing MAP, NDGC and a bunch of other stuff — we're really hoping to get the letor code sorted out over the next few months with this starting to be merged in. So at some point in the future, hopefully there will be "pluggable" evaluation options which maybe you can use.

The letor module on trunk lacks a lot of the work that has been done since then, but we have to do some work to be able to merge it in. It will result in more features, and hopefully an easier API to work with by the end of it, but unfortunately I can't give a concrete timescale to get things done by.
