boost-R/betaboost: Boosting Beta Regression

Implements boosting beta regression for potentially high-dimensional data (Mayr et al., 2018 <doi:10.1093/ije/dyy093>). The 'betaboost' package uses the same parametrization as 'betareg' (Cribari-Neto and Zeileis, 2010 <doi:10.18637/jss.v034.i02>) to make results directly comparable. The underlying algorithms are implemented via the R add-on packages 'mboost' (Hofner et al., 2014 <doi:10.1007/s00180-012-0382-5>) and 'gamboostLSS' (Mayr et al., 2012 <doi:10.1111/j.1467-9876.2011.01033.x>).
