A Precision Recall Curve graphs the relationship between soundness and completeness of
an Information Retrieval System.  In essence, these Curves measure quality of the algorithm.
I Love starting at 100% precision!  Let's hope its not all downhill from there as the optimal
IR system has 100% precision (1.0) and 100% recall (1.0).
