#' Tidy Model Results and Filter to Relevant Coefficients
#' 
#' Tidy function that returns a tidy data.frame of model results and allows filtering to relevant coefficients. The function will attempt to tidy model objects even when they do not have a tidy method available. For best results, first load the broom package via \code{library(broom)}.
#'
#' @param fit A model fit, as returned by a modeling function like lm, glm, or estimatr::lm_robust.
#' @param term A character vector of the terms that represent quantities of interest, i.e., "Z". If FALSE, return the first non-intercept term; if TRUE return all terms.
#'
#' @return A data.frame with coefficient estimates and associated statistics.
