conf: Plotting Two-Dimensional Confidence Regions

Plots the two-dimensional confidence region for probability distribution (Weibull or inverse Gaussian) parameters corresponding to a user given dataset and level of significance. The crplot() algorithm plots more points in areas of greater curvature to ensure a smooth appearance throughout the confidence region boundary. An alternative heuristic plots a specified number of points at roughly uniform intervals along its boundary. Both heuristics build upon the radial profile log-likelihood ratio technique for plotting two-dimensional confidence regions given by Jaeger (2016) <doi:10.1080/00031305.2016.1182946>.
