Archive function for auxiliary files for latex documents

Description

Creates a tar.gz file with all of the R files needed to recreate the tables and figures that appear in the paper. Should be considered experimental at this stage. It presumes that tables are generated with something like the Hmisc latex function and included in the latex document with input commands. Likewise figures are assumed to be included with includegraphics and generated by R in pdf format. This was originally developed to sort out the files for "Empirical Bayesball Remixed". An optional side of effect of the function to create a tar.gz file with the gzipped R files required for the paper.
