[Pkg-exppsy-maintainers] First round of SMLR working!

I have contacted the first author of the SMLR manuscript, and he sent
me some "rough" matlab code that he said has no copyrights and that I
could use any way that I wanted with no reference to him.  He was
overjoyed that we were getting use out of it and that we could port it
to include in any closed or open-source project we wanted.

So, I used his code as inspiration for the python code, which I then
ported to C.

He was so awesome about it that we should be sure to cite him whenever
we use it.

So, we are in the clear :)
