Accuracy measures for forecast model

Returns range of summary measures of the forecast accuracy. If x is provided, the function measures out-of-sample forecast accuracy based on x-f. If x is not provided, the function produces in-sample accuracy measures of the one-step forecasts based on f["x"]-fitted(f). All measures are defined and discussed in Hyndman and Koehler (2006).
