Comment (by pbrod):

 Yes, the gumbel distribution is already implemented, but that is beside
 the point. The point is to have a generalized extreme value distribution
 that accept all possible values of the shape parameter, ie., all possible
 distributions in the extreme value family, not only 2 out of 3.
 That is the meaning of the name, generalized. I think it is not a
 genaralized distribution if only 2 out of 3 possible extreme value
 distributions are implemented.
