As a further simplification, I also wonder whether the capability
to provide an initial guess (cf. method "withStartPoint" in class
"GaussianCurveFitter") should not be removed from specific fitters
that provide automatic guessing (as this procedure should embody
the best possible guess given the input data). Indeed a too "crude"
guess might confuse the optimizer (and thus the users, leading to
unnecessary bug reports).
