#  Actually compute the expected survival for one or more cohorts
#    of subjects.  If each subject is his/her own group, it gives individual
#    survival
#  group = groups (one curve per group)
#  x matrix contains the rate
#    table indices = starting point for each obs in the rate table.
#  y is the number of follow-up days for each subject
#  times = the time points at which survival is desired
#  death = T if we want the conditional estimate
