robustX: 'eXtra' / 'eXperimental' Functionality for Robust Statistics

Robustness – 'eXperimental', 'eXtraneous', or 'eXtraordinary' Functionality for Robust Statistics. Hence methods which are not well established, often related to methods in package 'robustbase'. Amazingly, 'BACON()', originally by Billor, Hadi, and Velleman (2000) <doi:10.1016/S0167-9473(99)00101-2> has become established in places. The "barrow wheel" 'rbwheel()' is from Stahel and Mächler (2009) <doi:10.1111/j.1467-9868.2009.00706.x>.
