Defines functions getParInfo getLowerBounds extractParameterListFromFit getStartingValues expandParsInCurrentFrame

## "parInfo" is a named list, each member also being a list containing
##   length
##   default - function of rho, aka the environment of the dev fun
##   lower   - lower bounds for par

## the order of elements in it is the order that they are passed to the optimizer
## not that that should matter to a downstream user. if they care, construct it by
## index

## for models with a single parameter vector, the name "theta" is sufficient
## so we can return without further analysis
