Defines functions use_data_table

Documented in use_data_table

#' Prepare for importing data.table
#' `use_data_table()` imports the `data.table()` function from the data.table
#' package, as well as several important symbols: `:=`, `.SD`, `.BY`, `.N`,
#' `.I`, `.GRP`, `.NGRP`, `.EACHI`. This is a minimal setup and you can learn
#' much more in the "Importing data.table" vignette:
#' `https://rdatatable.gitlab.io/data.table/articles/datatable-importing.html`.
#' In addition to importing these functions, `use_data_table()` also blocks the
#' usage of data.table in the `Depends` field of the `DESCRIPTION` file;
#' `data.table` should be used as an _imported_ or _suggested_ package only. See
#' this [discussion](https://github.com/Rdatatable/data.table/issues/3076).
#' @export

    ui_done("Deleting data.table from {ui_field('Depends')}")
