When to add a feature to Stan? The recurring issue of the compound declare-distribute statement

At today’s Stan meeting (this is Bob, so I really do mean today), we revisited the topic of whether to add a feature to Stan that would let you put distributions on parameters with their declarations. Compound declare-define statements Mitzi added declare-define statements a while back, so you can now write: transformed parameter { real […] The post When to add a feature to Stan?
