some minor issues I stumbled on:
1. Why are round brackets used for indexing in the accessor
'$coeff(myvarname)' but square brackets in the restriction syntax
'b[myvarname] = 0'?
(I'm guessing just historical reasons, so the question is should it be
2. The 'restrict --full' option is not documented in the 'restrict' help
entry, "only" in the VECM chapter of the manual.
3. And concerning 'restrict --full' I'm a bit confused:
In a systems context apart from VECM, AFAICS the restricted spec is
estimated by a block 'restrict ... end restrict' and then 'estimate'.
First, couldn't it be made like this also for VECMs?
Second, do restricted estimates (including single equations) always
become the "current model" for other purposes? If not, what's the rule
for this? I couldn't find the answer in the documentation.
