new option mh_initialize_from_previous_mcmc

new option mh_initialize_from_previous_mcmc that allows to pick initial values for a new MCMC from a previous one.

If an additional parameter is estimated, it is initialized using prior_draw. it has to be set using new estimation options:

  • mh_initialize_from_previous_mcmc to set the option
  • mh_initialize_from_previous_mcmc_directory: to provide the path to the metropolis folder from which to load parameter values that initialize the new MCMC
  • mh_initialize_from_previous_mcmc_model_name: to provide the name of the model used in the previous estimation (name could be different). Preprocessor should then set the following fields:

WIP since it requires provisions in preprocessor
