    This assumes that the ```eval``` method can operate in-place.  That is fine for the last
layer for MLP (SoftmaxLayerModelWithCrossEntropyLoss), but not OK in general.  More generally,
these methods for classifiers should not go in the very general TopologyModel abstraction;
that abstraction may be used in the future for regression as well.  I'd be fine with putting
this classification-specific logic in MLP itself; we do not need to generalize the logic until
we add other Classifiers, which might take a long time.
