Indeed.  My data has a significant amount of zeros and I think they
are generated by a different process than the proportions. So it
appears that there are tradeoffs - I can either choose fmlogit to
handle the problem of multiple proportions or zoib to model the zeros
and proportions.

Thank you very much. This has been very helpful.
