# Methods for actual rate tables, like
#  the table of US survival rates by age and sex (survexp.us).  Rate tables
#  have the "ratetable" class.  However, since each one is rather unique, 
#  there is no function to create a rate table.  Each consists of a multi-way
#  array of event rates along with a set of attributes.
