This function aggregates the results from SimDesign's
runSimulation into a single
objects suitable for post-analyses, or combines all the saved results directories and combines
them into one. This is useful when results are run piecewise on one node (e.g., 500 replications
in one batch, 500 again at a later date) or run independently across different
nodes/computers that are not on the same network.

name of .rds file to save aggregate simulation file to. Default is
the new directory to place the aggregated results files
files is used the function returns a
data.frame with the (weighted) average
of the simulation results. Otherwise, if
dirs is used, the function returns NULL
