  Remi trains the patterns as teams of features.  We just do frequentist
statistics on patterns as a whole.

  There should be some pretty rusty code that can feed patterns to
Remi's MM tools and train the teams of features, which was part of the
effort for the probdist playout policy.  I didn't bother trying this
approach for the pattern priors.  Based on what you noticed (I never
measured prediction rate - if you have some scripts/code for that, it
could be nice to have merged!), it could be a pretty nice boost!
