%FEVBAYES Evaluate Bayesian regularisation for network forward propagation.
%	Description
%	EXTRA = FEVBAYES(NET, Y, A, X, T, X_TEST) takes a network data
%	structure  NET together with a set of hidden unit activations A from
%	test inputs X_TEST, training data inputs X and T and outputs a matrix
%	of extra information EXTRA that consists of error bars (variance) for
%	a regression problem or moderated outputs for a classification
%	problem. The optional argument (and return value)  INVHESS is the
%	inverse of the network Hessian computed on the training data inputs
%	and targets.  Passing it in avoids recomputing it, which can be a
%	significant saving for large training sets.
%	This is called by network-specific functions such as MLPEVFWD which
%	are needed since the return values (predictions and hidden unit
%	activations) for different network types are in different orders (for
%	good reasons).
