Right, supervised learning stuff mostly -- you're right, my fault.

This sounds great to me. I just wanted to avoid having 18 different
modules under Bio doing different statistical work, and also desired
to make statistics code easy to find. So yeah, +1 from me on adding
a Bio.Statistics module with the Lowess function. Go right on ahead
and commit away.
