Changed conjugate prior of Normal/LogNormal distributions to be the
NormalInverseGamma distribution from a combination of the
Inverse Gamma distributions. This distribution is bivariate and gives us a 2d estimate for both
sig_sq. The params for this distribution are
beta and are different from the old priors that Normal/LogNormal were expecting.
Various doc changes to illustrate these changes and new expectations
