Ok I remember, Pareto is actually Lomax or Pareto second kind, and
should be renamed. The proposal was to rename the current pareto to
pareto2 and create a new pareto that corrects location by one.

In the meantime I discovered that Lomax is actually nicer to work with
than Pareto one, so it's mainly a question of terminology/names and
documentation. Just calling it pareto is very misleading.
