Defines functions ptd_add_short_group_warnings

#' Add Short Group Warnings (internal function)
#' Adds a column to the spc data frame warning of any groups of points that are
#' shorter than the warning_threshold, and which as a result do not follow best-
#' practice for the number of points on which to base SPC calculations.
#' Value is FALSE for any group (facet and rebase combined) that
#' is >= warning_threshold.
#' Value is TRUE for any group (facet and rebase combined) that
#' is < warning_threshold.
#' @param .data A data frame containing the information to be plotted.
#' @param warning_threshold An integer signifying the number of points that will
#' trigger a warning.
#' @return The original data frame with added column
#' @details to override the `warning_threshold` you can set the option `ptd_spc.warning_threshold`, e.g.
#' `options(ptd_spc.warning_threshold = 10)`. The default, if the option is not set, is 12.
#' @noRd
