#' Require a package for use in the project
#'
#' This functions will require the given package. If the package is not installed
#' it will stop execution and print a message to the user instructing them which
#' package to install and which function caused the error.
#'
#' The function \code{.require.package} is called by internal code. It will
#' attach the package to the search path (with a warning) only if the
#' compatibility configuration \code{attach_internal_libraries} is set to
#' \code{TRUE}.  Normally, packages used for loading data are not
#' needed on the search path, but not loading them might break existing code.
#' In a forthcoming version this compatibility setting will be removed,
#' and no packages will be attached to the search path by internal code.
#'
#' @param package.name A character vector containing the package name.
#'   Must be a valid package name installed on the system.
#' @param attach Should the package be attached to the search path (as with
#'   \code{\link{library}}) or not (as with \code{\link{loadNamespace}})?
#'   Defaults to \code{TRUE}. (Internal code will use \code{FALSE} by default
#'   unless a compatibility switch is set, see below.)
#'
#' @return No value is returned; this function is called for its side effects.
