Sorry - the last sentence is not correct.  What I should have said
is that EmpiricalDistribution should support this functionality.  I
had actually started implementing this, but not proposed / committed
it yet.  You can force this in EmpiricalDistribution now using
singleton bins, but it should be supported directly there.
