#' Drag-and-drop Descriptive Statistics
#'
#' Generate a table of descriptive statistics
#' by selecting columns from a file.
#' Currently supported formats include *.xpt, *.sas7bdat, and *.csv.
#' Launch the application using \code{mesa()} and use the interface
#' to select a data file, such as 'mtcars.xpt' under 'examples/')
#' (or select configuration file 'mtcars.conf' under 'examples/').
#' Then classify the
#' columns of interest to generate the corresponding
#' displays.
#'
#' Currently,
#'
#' * xpt files are read using the defaults for \code{\link[foreign]{read.xport}},
#'
#' * sas7bdat files are read using the defaults for \code{\link[haven]{read_sas}}, and
#'
#' * csv files are read using the defaults for \code{\link[csv]{as.csv}}.
#'
#' If a file in the same directory has a corresponding base name but a \code{.yaml}
#' extension, it is treated as metadata and an attempt is made to apply it
#' to the internal version of the data. This file will not be over-written,
#' but it WILL be constructed if missing.  You can hand-edit it to supply
#' metadata.  See \code{?yamlet} for format; see the Variables tab for an easy interface.
#'
#' This is a metadata-driven application.  Columns in the data that are *not*
#' in the metadata will be ignored, and columns in the metadata that are *not*
#' in the data will be constructed (maybe *all* of them).
#'
#' The \code{\link[datasets]{mtcars}} datasets in the 'examples' volume is from \pkg{datasets}.
#'
#' @param launch.browser passed to \code{\link[shiny]{runApp}}
#' @param display.mode passed to \code{\link[shiny]{runApp}}
#' @param ... passed to \code{\link[shiny]{runApp}}
