Updating functional demographic models and coherent functional demographic models.

Description

update.fmforecast() updates fdm forecasts. The argument object is the output from forecast.fdm which has been subsequently modified with new coefficient forecasts. These new forecasts are used when re-calculating the forecast of the mortality or fertility rates, or net migration numbers.

update.fmforecast2() updates fdmpr forecasts. The argument object is the output from forecast.fdmpr which has been subsequently modified with new coefficient forecasts.
