Hi David,

    I have not updated the webpage, but the package has an example on
how to use the BIC for comparing models:

http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scikits/browser/trunk/learn/scikits/learn/machine/em/examples/basic_example3.py

Note that it uses artificial data, so the model is well specified. It
does not work as well for real data :)

cheers,

David
