#' Arrange separate ggplots into the same graphic
#' @description
#' `r badge('experimental')`
#'
#' This is a wraper function around [patchwork::wrap_plots()] and
#' [patchwork::plot_annotation()] to arrange ggplot2 objects.
#' @param ... multiple `ggplot`s or a list containing `ggplot`
#'   objects.
#' @param nrow,ncol The number of rows and columns, respectively.
#' @param widths,heights The relative widths and heights of each column and row
#'   in the grid. Will get repeated to match the dimensions of the grid.
#' @param guides A string specifying how guides should be treated in the layout.
#'   Defaults to `'auto'`. Other possible values are `'keep'` and `'collect'`.
#'   In this case, will collect guides below to the given nesting level,
#'   removing duplicates.
#' @param design Specification of the location of areas in the layout.
#' @param legend.position The position of the legends in the plot if
#'   `guides = "collect"` Default to `'bottom'`.
#' @param title,subtitle,caption Text strings to use for the various plot
#' annotations.
#' @param tag_levels A character vector defining the enumeration format to use
#' at each level. Possible values are `'a'` for lowercase letters, `'A'` for
#' uppercase letters, `'1'` for numbers, `'i'` for lowercase Roman numerals, and
#' `'I'` for uppercase Roman numerals. It can also be a list containing
#' character vectors defining arbitrary tag sequences. If any element in the
#' list is a scalar and one of `'a'`, `'A'`, `'1'`, `'i`, or `'I'`, this level
#' will be expanded to the expected sequence.
#' @param tag_prefix,tag_suffix Strings that should appear before or after the
#' tag.
#' @param tag_sep A separator between different tag levels.
#' @param theme A ggplot theme specification to use for the plot. Only elements
#'   related to the titles as well as plot margin and background is used.
#' @return A `patchwork` object
