/* Classifiers have three methods for classification.
 - operator() returns TValue
 - classDistribution return PDistribution
 - predictionAndDistribution returns both

 At least one of the first two need to be overloaded. If the method
 can return probabilities (or at least something the closely
 ressembles it), it should redefine the second.
