I can’t tell what they really did, but I’m glad to see them include the Bayesian analysis, and it’s probably a good start.

Above all else we need to have it easy to use the standard Poisson trick as with BUGS/JAGS to get the Cox model. In terms of the partial likelihood I do like Efron for handling ties.

Couldn’t we enforce effectively the same with the reject statement, see section 5.10. of the manual. However I’m not sure what this will do to the posterior…
