Gmisc: A few handy misc functions for plots, tables, and more

This is a collection of functions for tables, plots, and more. For tables you'll find the convenient htmlTable() that I use for advanced markdown table layout. A major focus has been to have it compatible with LibreOffice and MS Word - you can now copy-paste most tables directly into your document from the viewer. The main plots in the package are the transitionPlot() and forestplot2(), see the examples for demo. Apart from those it is worth mentioning the getDescriptionStatsBy() and its associated function that help you generate a descriptive table (i.e. the Table 1 in most journals), the pvalueFormatter() that formats p-values, and mergeLists() that provides a complex recursive list merge.
