Improve description of phi and x parameters. Is phi supposed to be volume fraction of spheres, and x the solvent fraction within spheres? The redundant scale parameter is automatically included in all models, and has been removed.

Documentation, including equations, needs to reflect the additional parameters.

phi need not be polydisperse; the integral over a polydisperse scale factor is indistinguishable from a monodisperse scale factor equal to the weighted average of the polydisperse scale factor.

Is solvent fraction x supposed to be polydisperse? In which case with different spheres absorbing different amounts of solvent, shouldn't the underlying radius be increased and sld adjusted toward sld_solvent as solvent fraction increases? As it is now, being a scale factor on the sphere form, there is no reason to make it polydisperse.

As contrast is reduced by solvent fraction in the sphere, shouldn't the sphere form factor be reduced by the squared fraction? This would occur automatically if sld were adjusted toward sld_solvent by factor (1-x).

This model was one being written by ILL summer student in Summer 2016 but was then removed due to massive issues with the commit before the release — at some point a new version may be put in by Miguel but seems to be in limbo so closing this ticket. If and when such a model does get submitted it should be reviewed from scratch.
