Has there been any progress on this in recent times? It looks like there are multiple pull
requests for this but no comments in more than a year.... :(

Weights are important when there is imbalanced training data or the evaluation metric of a
classifier is imbalanced (e.g. true positive rate at some false positive threshold).  Sample
weights generalize class weights, so this could be used to add class weights later on.
