Hi Milan,

Your proposal sounds like a "nice" idea, but wouldn't it be better to generalize
your ANN library into a generic maximum likelihood estimation library - because
at the end of the day that is what an ANN is, nothing more nothing less it would
also provide the users of the library access to other estimation/modeling paradigms,
which is a good thing.

Thinking they know everything about all things.
