* Added high-level driver function "simpleVariableBandwidthSmooth1D" to
automatically build the pilot estimate for "variableBandwidthSmooth1D".
* Swithched to log of sigma as Minuit parameter in "minuitFitJohnsonCurves"

non-uniformly binned histograms.
* Adapted "minuitFitJohnsonCurves" function so that it could be used with

* Improved (again) random number generator for the 1-d Gaussian distribution.
Something about expectation values of normalized Hermite polynomials over
random numbers made by this generator is still not fully understood. The
standard deviation of these expectations decreases with the polynomial
order (while it should stay constant). It is possible that the numbers
of points used are simply insufficient to sample the tails correctly.
* Implemented smoothed expectation-maximization (a.k.a. D'Agostini) unfolding

persistent.

* Added function "lorpeBackgroundCVDensity1D" which linearizes calculation
of the cross validation likelihood in semiparametric fits. Argument
"linearizeCrossValidation" was added to MinuitSemiparametricFitFcn1D
constructor, "lorpeBackground1D" function, etc.
* Added the ability to build filters with center point removed to classes
WeightTableFilter1DBuilder and StretchingFilter1DBuilder. The function
"symbetaLOrPEFilter1D" now has an appropriate switch.
