#' @title Create a Cyclops parameterized prior object
#'
#' @description
#' \code{createParameterizedPrior} creates a Cyclops prior object for use with \code{\link{fitCyclopsModel}}
#' in which arbitrary \code{R} functions parameterize the prior location and variance.
#'
#' @param priorType     Character vector: specifies prior distribution.  See below for options
#' @param parameterize  Function list: parameterizes location and variance
#' @param values        Numeric vector: initial parameter values
#' @param useCrossValidation    Logical: Perform cross-validation to determine \code{parameters}.
#' @param forceIntercept  Logical: Force intercept coefficient into prior
#'
#' @return
#' A Cyclops prior object of class inheriting from \code{"cyclopsPrior"} and \code{"cyclopsFunctionalPrior"}
#' for use with \code{fitCyclopsModel}.
