Hi Jim,

I agree with you 100%. I am likelihood freak too and would like to have
profile likelihood conf intervals.

Also I would love to know how to compute profile likelihood confidence
intervals when doing MLE with nlm. I have never seen this described
anywhere in enough detail to do it myself. (I would incorporate that into
the little nonlinear model fitting section I wrote for Notes on R.)
