The function considers the counts per segment and uses them sequentially until `d`

positive counts
are obtained or until all `s`

segments have been considered. If we assume that `u`

counts are used (of
which some may be zero) then
the visual fast count estimator is the mean over the `u`

counts multiplied by `s`

. This function is used
by `GVFCMOM`

to obtain the method of moments VFC estimator - which has reduced bias compared to the
raw VFC estimator.

1 | ```
GVFC(counts, s, d)
``` |

`counts` |
Vector of length s that contains a count for each segment |

`s` |
Number of segments |

`d` |
Number of positive segment counts needed before counting stops |

The raw VFC estimate of the segment mean
