You could do part(s) of it yourself, I see two ways to do something like
what you describe:
1) write a filtered trajectory (using g_anaeig, I believe) and cluster
that using g_cluster. (But, I'm not sure if it makes much sense this way.)
2) calculate pairwise frame-distances in the 2D (or 3D) projections,
write those out in a matrix, and read that in g_cluster to cluster. (You
may need to tune carefully the settings for g_cluster, as the defaults
may not be optimal for this type of clustering.)
