jarrod-dalton/jsd: Multidimensional Balance Assessment the Jensen-Shannon Diverenge

Implements the Jensen-Shannon Divergence (JSD) for balance assessment on binary, categorical or continuous variables. Continuous variables are transformed to factors - via the function chop() - prior to computation. Bayesian estimation of the JSD is performed in closed-form by sampling from the Dirichlet-Multinomial posterior of the individual groups' distributions.
