#' Add UCDP onsets to state-year data
#'
#' @description \code{add_ucdp_onsets()} allows you to add information about conflict episode onsets from the UCDP
#' data program to state-year data.
#'
#'
#' @return \code{add_ucdp_onsets()} takes a state-year data frame and adds a few summary
#' variables based off armed conflict onsets data provided by UCDP. The variables returned are
#' the sum of new conflict dyads (should they exist) in a given state-year, and the sum of new onset episodes (or new conflicts) that are
#' separated by one, two, three, five, or 10 years since the last conflict episode.
#'
#' @details The function leans on attributes of the data that are provided by the \code{create_dyadyear()} or
#' \code{create_stateyear()} function. Make sure that function (or data created by that function) appear at the top
#' of the proverbial pipe. The underlying data are version 19.1. Importantly, the UCDP yearly onset data are nominally state-year,
#' but technically state-dyad-episode-year for cases of onsets. For example, there are four France-1946 observations because of four
#' new conflict episodes with Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. There are two Panama-1989 episodes, one for the invasion by
#' the United States and another for a failed coup attempt. That means the are duplicates in the original data that I process
#' into summaries. The user will probably want to consider some kind of recoding here.
