> This implementation in WilcoxonSignedRankTest looks weird. For equal vectors, the correct
pValue should be 1, because it is the probability of the vectors to come from same population.
> On the opposite, this implementation returns ~0 for equal vectors. So we need to analyze
the returned pValue > significanceLevel to reject H0 hypothesis, while in R and many others
tools we perform the opposite: pValue <= significanceLevel gives us an argument to reject
null hypothesis.
