transits and radial velocities

Foreman-Mackey and I pair-coded radial-velocity capabilities into his transit-modeling code. This may be monstrous mission creep! But it is so cool that we can handle all the data on the system simultaneously. We are also close to having astrometric modeling going at the same time, so we are even ready for Gaia. In my spare time today I worked on a demonstration that with proper inference, you can measure the properties of a population of objects, no single member of which you have ever detected (in the statistical significance sense of detected).
