#' Declare a design via a designer
#'
#' \code{expand_design} easily generates a set of design from a designer function.
#'

#' @param designer a function which yields a design
#' @param ... Options sent to the designer
#' @param expand boolean - if true, form the crossproduct of the ..., otherwise recycle them
#' @param prefix prefix for the names of the designs, i.e. if you create two designs they would be named prefix_1, prefix_2
#'
#' @return if set of designs is size one, the design, otherwise a `by`-list of designs. Designs are given a parameters attribute with the values of parameters assigned by expand_design.
