Description: Starting from a given object representing a fitted model (within
a certain set of model classes) whose linear predictor includes some ordered
factor(s) among the explanatory variables, a new model is constructed and
fitted where each named factor is replaced by a single numeric score, suitably
chosen so that the new variable produces a fit comparable with the standard
methodology based on a set of polynomial contrasts. Reference: Azzalini (2023)
