smof: Scoring Methodology for Ordered Factors

Starting from a given object representing a fitted model (within a certain set of model classes) whose linear predictor includes some ordered factor(s) among the explanatory variables, a new model is constructed and fitted where each named factor is replaced by a single numeric score, suitably chosen so that the new variable produces a fit comparable with the standard methodology based on a set of polynomial contrasts.
