#' Simple Formula Interface
#'
#' This simple formula interface handles formulae of the form
#'   \code{dependent ~ independent | group1 + group2 + ...}.
#'
#' This function is used by \code{\link{multisplit}} and normally not called
#'   by the user.
#'
#' @param grouping a model formula specifying dependent,
#'   independent and grouping variables in the form:
#'   \code{dependent ~ independent | group1 + group2 + ...}.
#'
#' @return a list with the elements \code{valuevar},  \code{timevar}, and
#'   \code{groups}
#'
#' @seealso \code{\link{multisplit}},  \code{\link{split}}
