No problem, let's just get rid of mine.
The only thing in partial disagreement that I feel like saying,
however, is: competing implementation of a given technique may be nice
to have (the standard bio-diversity metaphor applies). But certainly,
only up to a point. My implementation hasn't been maintained for a
long time and it should go.
I agree in that we should admit competing implementations of a given
In this particular case if HEGY_test were including p-values it could be
expected to be more precise than GHegy for the specific case S=4,
because the first one is fitting a surface-reponse regresion for this
specific value of S=4, and the second is fitting a surface-response
regresion to differente values of S. But I must say that I did some
checking about the 10%, 5% and 1% critical values finding that the
differences between the two procedures were in general not superior to
