[Ifeffit] Applicable scope of delr=alpha*reff

If you think it’s plausible that the crystal is expanded or contracted isotropically and homogeneously, then it’s a model worth trying. It’s usually my first model for fitting just about any crystalline material. Often, the resulting fits are not good, and then I have to try other models. But sometimes, particularly when the differences from my model structure are small, it works fairly well.

In terms of the criteria I described here<https://www-ssrl.slac.stanford.edu/conferences/workshops/srxas2011/presentations/calvin_2011.pdf> and elsewhere, it has the advantage of “simplicity” under criterion 4. Whether or not it produces a good fit under the other criteria is, of course, something that you have to find out for each system.

Hi, everyone.
delr=alpha*reff is very powerful in the fit of cubic system. And I want to know whether this function can be used in other crystal system. Thank for your patient answer.
