### Description

Compute the Deviance, i.e., - 2 log[likelihood(*)] of a fitted VLMC object. The log-likelihood is also known as “entropy”.

possibly further arguments (none at the moment). |

### Value

A number, the deviance, i.e., *- 2 log.likelihood(*)*.
where the log.likelihood is really what we currently have
as `entropy()`
