That is correct. I think model diagnostics are important, and I will
at some point in the future also develop those for -zoib-. However, I
also think that statistical test embody the wrong tradeoff when it
comes to choosing models
<>, so I
won't be implementing a Lagrange multiplier specification tests or any
other specification tests.
