```#' Mean residual life plot
#'
#' Calculate mean residual life and plot it to aid the identification of a
#' threshold over which to fit a generalized Pareto distribution
#'
#' Threshold choice for the fitting of the GPD is guided by the shape of the
#' Mean Residual Life plot.  A threshold which is suitably high will have a
#' corresponding mrl plot which is approximately linear in shape above the
#' threshold (up to sampling variation).

#' @param data A numeric vector.
#' @param umin The minimum value over which to threshold the data.
#' @param umax The maximum value over which to threshold the data.
#' @param alpha Used to determine coverage of confidence interval to plot.
#' Defaults to plotting a 95\% interval.
#' @param nint The number of points at which to compute the plot.
#' @param x,object Arguments to print, summary and plot functions.
#' @param xlab Label for the x-axis. Defaults to \code{xlab="Threshold"}.
#' @param ylab Label for the y-axis. Defaults to \code{ylab="Mean excess"}.
#' @param \dots Optional arguments to \code{plot}.
#' @param col Colour of the line on the MRL plot.
#' @param rug Whether to add raw data as a rug along axis of plot.
#' @param fill Colour of the pointwise confidence region on the MRL plot.
#' @param main Main title.
#' @param addNexcesses Whether to annotate the plot with the numbers of
#' excesses over increasing thresholds. Defaults to \code{addNexcesses=TRUE}.
#' @param textsize Size of text on the plot (ggplot). Defaults to
#' \code{textsize=4}.
#' @param mapping,environment Not used.
#' @return A list with two components. \code{data} is the original data,
#' \code{mrl} is a matrix containing information to produce the mean residual
#' life plot.
#' @note The function was originally written by Stuart Coles and appears in the
#' \code{ismev} package. This version modified by Harry Southworth to allow
#' more control over the appearance of the plot.
