#' Create a gustafson object from a dataframe or matrix object
#'
#' Extends the native \code{nls} object to specialize it calculating Gunther's
#'nls models for Universal Scaling Law. Allows multiple models to be
#'stored in one workspace.
#'
#' @param x a data.frame or matrix object containing data for model.
#' A data.frame should the data in columns named \code{N},for "scaled objects"
#' (e.g. users, cpus), and \code{X_N}, for measured throughput. The default for
#' a matrix object is to put scaled objects in the matrix's column 1
#' (i.e. \code{x[,1]}) and throughput in column 2 \code{x[,2]}
#' @param start a named list with a guess for alpha
#' @param ... additional arguments to pass to function
#' @return sfit object
#' @export
#' @examples
#' data(USLcalc)
