Re: st: re: ksmirnov
The issue goes somewhat deeper than that. -ksmirnov- computes
incorrect results in the case of ties, and this should be fixed.
However, not that, even if computed correctly, the Kolmogorov-Smirnov
test is conservative for discrete data (see, e.g., Conover 1972).

While I'm on this topic, I found a note in the Statalist saying that
the implementation of ksmirnov is faulty for discrete data. As far as
I can tell, it has not been fixed, despite Stas and Ben asking:
Can't we get this one fixed or what??
