#' Convert SAM Table to TAF Format
#'
#' Convert a table from SAM format to TAF format.
#'
#' @param x a matrix containing columns \verb{Estimate}, \verb{Low}, and
#'        \verb{High}.
#' @param colname a descriptive column name for the output.
#' @param year whether to include a year column.
#'
#' @details
#' The default when \code{colname = NULL} is to try to infer a column name from
#' the \code{x} argument. For example,
#'
#' \preformatted{sam2taf(ssbtable(fit))
#' sam2taf(ssb)
#' sam2taf(SSB)}
#'
#' will recognize \verb{ssbtable} calls and \verb{ssb} object names, implicitly
#' setting \code{colname = "SSB"} if the user does not pass an explicit value
#' for \code{colname}.
#'
#' @return A data frame in TAF format.
#'
#' @note
#' The \pkg{stockassessment} package provides accessor functions that return a
#' matrix with columns \verb{Estimate}, \verb{Low}, and \verb{High}, while TAF
#' tables are stored as data frames with a year column.
#'
#' @seealso
#' \code{\link{summary.taf}} describes the TAF format.
#'
#' \code{catchtable}, \code{fbartable}, \code{rectable}, \code{ssbtable}, and
#' \code{tsbtable} (in the \pkg{stockassessment} package) return matrices with
#' SAM estimates and confidence limits.
#'
#' The \code{summary} method for \code{sam} objects produces a summary table
#' with some key quantities of interest, containing duplicated column names
#' (\verb{Low}, \verb{High}) and rounded values.
#'
#' \code{\link{TAF-package}} gives an overview of the package.

#' ## Example objects
