Greene (Econometric Analysis, 4th ed, p. 510) remarks that "it has been
argued that the Breusch-Pagan Lagrange multiplier test is quite sensitive to
the assumption of normality.  Koenker (1981) and Koenker and Bassett (1982)
suggest that the computation of LM be based on a more robust estimator of
the variance of e_i^2..."
