Yep, the lack of that info for the distributions has been vaguely nagging at
the back of my brain. The implementations are mostly trivially in terms of
other functions, so it'll probably just be "accuracy: see incomplete beta"
or whatever.

I was afraid someone was going to ask for that :-)

Paul and I have been deliberately avoiding the non-central distributions
('cos they're hard!), but if anyone has any references / implementation
pointers I'll at least take a look and see if it's feasible.

Thanks for the comments,
