- (support d)

**** EXPERIMENTAL ****

A function of the incanter.distribution.Distribution protocol.

Returns the support of the probability distribution d.

For discrete distributions, the support is a set (i.e. #{1 2 3}).

For continuous distributions, the support is a 2 element vector

discribing the range. For example, the uniform distribution over

the unit interval would return the vector [0 1].

This function is marked as experimental to note that the output

format might need to adapt to more complex support structures.

For example, what would best describe a mixture of continuous

distributions?
