In the example, I just did the stacking based on the 2d array to have
it quickly written, for unequal sized data groups it is easier to work
directly with the stacked array, and just index into it, or for
example create a `b` array that has the values repeated corresponding
to the group sizes. (Same story as with balanced versus unbalance

Do you have a non-linear ODR example? I didn't even know ODR can do
non-linear parameter estimation.
