class BoostedLearner(orange.Learner):
    Instead of drawing a series of bootstrap samples from the training set,
    bootstrap maintains a weight for each instance. When a classifier is 
    trained from the training set, the weights for misclassified instances 
    are increased. Just like in a bagged learner, the class is decided based 
    on voting of classifiers, but in boosting votes are weighted by accuracy 
    obtained on training set.

    BoostedLearner is an implementation of AdaBoost.M1 (Freund and Shapire, 
    1996). From user's viewpoint, the use of the BoostedLearner is similar to 
    that of BaggedLearner. The learner passed as an argument needs to deal 
    with instance weights.
