Comment(by warren.weckesser):

 Ideally, fitting an erlang distribution to a data set would perform a
 discrete optimization.  The result would be the best integer shape
 parameter for the data set. I know we won't have such an implementation
 any time soon (if ever), but in a perfect world, that is what I would
 expect the fit method of the erlang distribution to do.
