No doubt there should. But I'm now in the thick of a big teaching
semester and I won't be able to do anything about it soon. Registering a
feature request might be a good idea.
Right, I will do that. But first let me consolidate a few things here;
in an off-list email from last your we had this discussion about the
fact that with 'vif' you also get a Belsley-Kuh-Welch printout, and that
there's Lee's bkw package:
... the bkw.gfn package now of course provides a solution, but why
have that code duplication? So would it be possible to add a hansl
interface to that piece of built-in code?
Yes, that's something we should do. Right now Jack and I are working on
the Nelder-Mead optimizer, but I'll put it on my "to do" list.
Also let me remind everybody that there's a recent native cnumber()
function which is somewhat related.
Maybe some of these interfaces could be consolidated (with extra options
or stuff like that).
