Hi, is there any interest in adding the concordance index ranking function
to scikit-learn? It is a ranking score that scores a (finite) ordered list
of objects, and it's used for survival analysis.

Whereas ***@k is concerned about a single object appearing in the top k ranks
of a list, the concordance index is more thorough, judging pairwise scores
of any two objects in the list.
