Description
ProbabilityEstimatorConstructor_call does not parse the argument tuple correctly when using None for the distribution (as documented here)
import Orange iris = Orange.data.Table('iris') Orange.statistics.estimate.M(None, iris) # raises TypeError: Invalid arguments for 'ProbabilityEstimatorConstructor.call' prior = Orange.statistics.distribution.Distribution("iris", iris) Orange.statistics.estimate.M(None, prior, iris) # raises TypeError: Invalid arguments for 'ProbabilityEstimatorConstructor.call'
Is this even worth fixing? Considering that no builtin constructors actually use the instances argument. Instead we could just simplify the documented interface (leave out the instances and weight_id parameters). Instead have helper functions in the estimate package that compute estimators from Orange.data.Table.

Aleš, I agree: we shouldn't waste time with this. Please simplify the documentation or do whatever is the easiest.
