I made some rather trivial modifications to Nir Krakauer's stepwisefit.m in the statistics package, in order to select predictors to consider for inclusion in the models based on partial p values, rather than on correlation with the residual. This is as far as I can understand also suggested in Section 2.9 of Draper & Smith: Applied Regression Analysis, second edition, Wiley 1981.

- Computationally probably more intense than correlation
- I am not a statistician, so not so confident that I got it all right

+ Partial p values should be a much more reliable measure of the significance of a predictor than correlation with the residual
+ stepwisefit_p.m seems to perform much better than stepwisefit.m on at least some examples arising from CCD experimental designs

The Octave community is of course free to do what it finds fit with this small development. Thanks to Nir for suggesting that I post the modification here.
