bootstraps the default probability curve
using credit default swap (CDS) market quotes. The market quotes
can be expressed as a list of maturity dates and corresponding CDS
market spreads, or as a list of maturities and corresponding upfronts
and standard spreads for standard CDS contracts. The estimation uses
the standard model of the survival probability.
