I have taken a stab at an outline for the User Guide. I have started
writing the first three sections (overview, statistics and data
generation). The structure more or less follows the package structure
and the intent is to focus on how to do things rather than how the code
is organized. The one potentially controversial point is the inclusion
of "statistical computation utilities" in the "Utilities" section, since
there will be some duplication (poetic justice  he he) with the section
on statistics. I will submit the xdocs for this and sections 0, 1 and 2
if there are no objections to the structure.
