#' Confidence intervals for gldrm coefficients
#'
#' Plots and returns the randomized probability inverse transform of a 
#' fitted gldrm.
#'
#' @param gldrmFit A gldrm model fit. Must be an S3 object of class "gldrm",
#' returned from the \code{gldrm} function. The matrix of semiparametric
#' tilted probabilities must be returned, which is done by fitting gldrm with
#' \code{gldrmControl = gldrm.control(returnfTiltMatrix = TRUE)}.
#' @param nbreaks Number of breaks in the histogram.
#' @param cex.main Text size for main titles.
#' @param cex.lab Text size for axis labels.
#' @param cex.axis Text size for axis numbers.
#' 
#' @return Randomized robability inverse transform as a vector. Also plots the 
#' histogram and uniform QQ plot.
#' 
#' @details
#' The probability inverse transform is defined generally as \eqn{\hat{F}(y|x)},
#' which is the fitted conditional cdf of each observation evaluated at the
#' observed response value. In the case of gldrm, the fitted cdf is descrete, so
#' we draw a random value from a uniform distribution on the interval 
#' (\eqn{\hat{F}(y|x)}, \eqn{\hat{F}(y-|x)}), where \eqn{y-} is the next largest 
#' observed support less than \eqn{y} (or -Infinity if \eqn{y} is the minimum 
#' support value). The output and plots generated by this function will vary
#' slightly each time it is called (unless the random number generator seed is 
#' set beforehand).
