Great, thanks. If I want to demonstrate that a non-linear curve fits
better than an exponential, what's the best measure for that? Given
that neither of nls() or optim() provide R-squared. Sorry if these are
really silly questions.

Nope, my fault, I didn't read them properly and thought you were
demonstrating a different way to do exponential curves.
