#' Add Gleditsch-Ward state system codes to your data with Correlates of War state codes.
#'
#' @description \code{add_gwcode_to_cow()} allows you to match, as well as one can, Gleditsch-Ward system membership data
#' with Correlates of War state system membership data.
#'
#'
#' @return \code{add_gwcode_to_cow()} takes a (dyad-year, leader-year, leader-dyad-year, state-year)
#' data frame that already has Correlates of War
#' state system codes and adds their corollary Gleditsch-Ward codes.
#'
#' @details
#'
#' The \code{data-raw} directory on the project's Github contains more
#' information about the underlying data that assists in merging in these
#' codes.
#'
#' The user will invariably need to be careful and ask why they want
#' these data included. The issue here is that both have a different
#' composition and the merging process will not (and cannot) be perfect.
#' We can note that a case like Serbia/Yugoslavia is not too difficult
#' to handle (since "Serbia" never overlaps with "Yugoslavia" in the
#' Gleditsch-Ward data and Correlates of War understands Serbia as the
#' predecessor state, dominant state, and successor state to Yugoslavia).
#' However, there is greater weirdness with a case like Yemen/Yemen
#' Arab Republic. The script will *not* create state-year or dyad-year
#' duplicates for the Correlates of War codes. The size of the original data
#' remain unchanged. However, there will be some year duplicates for various
#' Gleditsch-Ward codes (e.g. Yemen, again). Use with care. You can also use
#' the \pkg{countrycode} package. Whether you use this function or the
#' \pkg{countrycode} package, do *not* do this kind of merging without
#' assessing the output.
