Description
It should also be possible to use VariableNetwork problem instances with zero noise. Additionally, the problem descriptions could be improved such that variable descriptions are ordered alphabetically.

The variable relevance measure introduced with r14271 does not completely match our definition of variable relevance. The variable relevance calculation should therefore be adapted.

r14291: changed calculation of variable relevance values for variable interaction networks based on sampling Gaussian processes.
Instead of taking inverse length scale (ARD). We calculate the deviation from the original function (y) after individual variables are removed (y').

The current variable relevance calculation does not consider relevances of indirectly dependent variables.

Replying to gkronber:
The current variable relevance calculation does not consider relevances of indirectly dependent variables.
This is in fact the correct approach.
When we sample data form the network we also observe statistical dependencies to other - indirectly related - variables. However, these indirect dependencies should not be considered as actual dependencies within the network (indirectly connected variables are conditionally independent).
