#' Precision plot used to compare the standard deviation of a new measurement
#' method with that of a reference standard with possibly heteroscedastic errors
#'
#' This plot allows the visual comparison of the precision (i.e. standard deviation)
#' of the new measurement method with that of a reference standard by creating
#' a scatter plot of the estimated standard deviation against the best linear
#' prediction (BLUP) of the latent variable x.
