Notes
If no inner nonlinear preconditioner is provided then solves F(x)  b = 0 using x^{n+1} = x^{n}  lambda
(F(x^n)  b) where lambda is obtained either SNESLineSearchSetDamping(), snes_damping or a line search. If
an inner nonlinear preconditioner is provided (either with npc_snes_type or SNESSetNPC()) then the inner
solver is called an initial solution x^n and the nonlinear Richardson uses x^{n+1} = x^{n} + lambda d^{n}
where d^{n} = \hat{x}^{n}  x^{n} where \hat{x}^{n} is the solution returned from the inner solver.
The update, especially without inner nonlinear preconditioner, may be illscaled. If using the basic
linesearch, one may have to scale the update with snes_linesearch_damping
This uses no derivative information thus will be much slower then Newton's method obtained with snes_type ls
Only supports left nonlinear preconditioning.
