The summary() function has a optional parameter 'numObs = X' that adjusts the number of observations to 'X' for the purposes of calculating summary statistics. I'm in the process of adding an argument 'numObs = X' to the mxAlgebraObjective() function that will increment the total number of observations in the model by 'X' for the purposes of calculating summary statistics.

Question: do we need a similar knob for the number of observed statistics in the summary() function and in the mxAlgebraObjective() function?
