Object-Oriented Bayesian Inference II

A while ago, I blogged about a little piece of code I had written as an example for my book.

Back then, it was a fun exercise for me, but it was clearly unfinished (and it still is) but worth as an example of how to model a mathematical object, a Bayesian random variate, as a python class.

Despite its simplicity and incompleteness, that example, still attracts attention, and people contact me asking for the code. In order to better serve those interested in this problem, I decided to create a project on google code to host the code.

I am still interested in taking this code further, extending its applicability to real problems. So if anyone is willing to help, the project site will hopefully be a good channel for that.
