"Approximate Recall Confidence Intervals", updated and in submission

Much later than I intended, after painstaking editing to get the length down from 39 to 31 pages, I've prepared a revised version of "Approximate Recall Confidence Intervals", which is now in submission. Aside from tightening up the text and excluding a few inessential results, the main change from the first version has been to force interval upper edges to 1 where no relevant documents are found in the unretrieved sample, and to 0 where none are found in the retrieved sample. I've also released recci, an R package for computing recall confidence intervals, along with other R packages for generating figures and tables and re-running the experiments reported in the paper.
