#711 new enhancement

speed up exact p-value for small n in Kendall

Class Kendall currently uses a naive algorithm that parses through all N! permutations and calculates the score. Since the score calculation scales (N2, see #710) this becomes expensive for not very large N. It should be possible to calculate the P-value in an recursive fashion similar to ROC. statsdirect tabulates values for small N and then use an Egenworth expansion for larger N (approximation?).
