#' Out-of-Sample Posterior Prediction under the Nonparametric Bayesian Model
#' for Ecological Inference in 2x2 Tables
#'
#' Obtains out-of-sample posterior predictions under the fitted nonparametric
#' Bayesian model for ecological inference. \code{predict} method for class
#' \code{ecoNP} and \code{ecoNPX}.
#'
#' The posterior predictive values are computed using the Monte Carlo sample
#' stored in the \code{eco} or \code{ecoNP} output (or other sample if
#' \code{newdraw} is specified). Given each Monte Carlo sample of the
#' parameters, we sample the vector-valued latent variable from the appropriate
#' multivariate Normal distribution. Then, we apply the inverse logit
#' transformation to obtain the predictive values of proportions, \eqn{W}. The
#' computation may be slow (especially for the nonparametric model) if a large
#' Monte Carlo sample of the model parameters is used. In either case, setting
#' \code{verbose = TRUE} may be helpful in monitoring the progress of the code.

#' @aliases predict.ecoNPX
#' @param object An output object from \code{ecoNP}.
#' @param newdraw An optional list containing two matrices (or three
#' dimensional arrays for the nonparametric model) of MCMC draws of \eqn{\mu}
#' and \eqn{\Sigma}. Those elements should be named as \code{mu} and
#' \code{Sigma}, respectively. The default is the original MCMC draws stored in
#' \code{object}.
#' @param subset A scalar or numerical vector specifying the row number(s) of
#' \code{mu} and \code{Sigma} in the output object from \code{eco}. If
#' specified, the posterior draws of parameters for those rows are used for
#' posterior prediction. The default is \code{NULL} where all the posterior
#' draws are used.
#' @param obs An integer or vector of integers specifying the observation
#' number(s) whose posterior draws will be used for predictions. The default is
#' \code{NULL} where all the observations in the data set are selected.
#' @param cond logical. If \code{TRUE}, then the conditional prediction will
#' made for the parametric model with contextual effects. The default is
#' \code{FALSE}.
#' @param verbose logical. If \code{TRUE}, helpful messages along with a
#' progress report on the Monte Carlo sampling from the posterior predictive
#' distributions are printed on the screen. The default is \code{FALSE}.
#' @param ... further arguments passed to or from other methods.
#' @return \code{predict.eco} yields a matrix of class \code{predict.eco}
#' containing the Monte Carlo sample from the posterior predictive distribution
#' of inner cells of ecological tables. \code{summary.predict.eco} will
#' summarize the output, and \code{print.summary.predict.eco} will print the
#' summary.
