If the fit is rank-deficient, some of the columns of the design matrix
will have been dropped. Prediction from such a fit only makes sense
newdata is contained in the same subspace as the original

is used as a scale factor. For a weighted fit, if the prediction
is for the original data frame,
weights defaults to the weights
used for the model fit, with a warning since it might not be the
intended result. If the fit was weighted and newdata is given, the
default is to assume constant prediction variance, with a warning.
predict.manylm produces a matrix of predictions or if

newdata and then searched for

used in the fit). A warning will be given if the
variables found are not of the same length as those in

offset term in the formula will be.
Notice that prediction variances and prediction intervals always refer to future observations, possibly corresponding to the same predictors as used for the fit. The variance of the residuals will be smaller.
Strictly speaking, the formula used for prediction limits assumes that
the degrees of freedom for the fit are the same as those for the
residual variance. This may not be the case if
not obtained from the fit.
