  Description     : Yet more Objects for Data Analysis

YODA is a small set of data analysis (specifically histogramming)
classes being developed by MCnet members as a lightweight common
system for MC event generator validation analyses.

A few key features of YODA are as follows:

Storage of all information needed for statistically correct run
combination and reweighting up to second-order correlations
(e.g. variances, std devs, etc.) not just in the number of entries in
a bin, but also the correlations of that with the x and y fill values.

Separation of statistics and data handling from presentation. YODA is
primarily a library for doing the data part correctly: while we love
really high quality data presentation, that's a separate goal.

A sensible class hierarchy for histogramming, recognising that a
histogram contains details of fill history beyond the pure visual
height of a bin, and that just counting weights, or binning arbitrary
types on an axis are valuable operations.

Flexible data format support, including a new text-based, compact, and
human-readable YODA format.

Proper and convenience treatment of "details" like irregular bin
widths, gaps in contiguous binning, and
overflows/underflows/etc. (incuding how they impact normalisation and
calculation of histo-wide stat quantities) Carefully designed
programming interfaces in C++ and Python.
