[ROOT] Limit Calculators in ROOT

Hi,

There are now three classes to estimate confidence levels
in ROOT:

- TFeldmanCousins
- TLimit
- TRolke

I have a couple of questions about these:

1. I guess TRolke makes TFeldmanCousins obsolete?
2. What are the advantages of TRolke over TLimit?
3. Has TRolke acutally been used in practice
    (= in published papers)?
4. Is there already some controversy connected with TRolke,
    similar to the other methods?
5. Why doesn't TRolke have a nice histogram interface
    like TLimit? ;)

Thanks,
Gerhard
