#' Decode Orderings using a Key to Item Names
#'
#' Decode orderings by replacing numeric or character coded values with item
#' names.
#'
#' @param orderings A data frame of coded orderings.
#' @param items A data frame of the items in each ranking, or a vector of
#' common items.
#' @param code (Optional) a vector giving the key to the code. If missing,
#' `names(items)` is used for a character code, while `seq(items)` is used
#' for a numeric code.
#' @return A data frame with the coded values replaced by the item names.
