just a quick question that I don't understand from a brief look at the source
Isn't the core of "from_columns" doing the same quantization as
np.histogramdd? ( I haven't looked closely enough yet)
If x in from_columns is a tuple, then an array_like could also contain
strings, e.g. names/levels of a categorical variable. I'm not sure how
far this should go.
methods or functions "from_flat" and "to_flat" would be useful.
chi2 could be renamed to chi2_indep, or take an optional expected
keyword, where the user could specify other distribution hypotheses.
