* This fuction does the create an eoInit<eoOneMax>
* It could be here tempatized only on the fitness, as it can be used
* to evolve structures with any fitness.
* However, for consistency reasons, it was finally chosen, as in
* the rest of EO, to templatize by the full EOT, as this eventually
* allows to choose the type of genotype at run time (see in es dir)
* It returns an eoInit<EOT> that can later be used to initialize
* the population (see make_pop.h).
* It uses a parser (to get user parameters) and a state (to store the memory)
* the last argument is to disambiguate the call upon different instanciations.
* WARNING: that last argument will generally be the result of calling
*                  the default ctor of EOT, resulting in most cases in an EOT
*                  that is ***not properly initialized***

  // the param itself will belong to the parser (as far as memory is concerned)
  //      paramType & param = _parser.createParam(deafultValue, "Keyword", "Comment to appear in help and status", 'c',"Section of status file").value();
  // Then built the initializer - a pointer, stored in the eoState

  // Eventually by passing the parameters you need
