Documented in checkGrpOrderSEM

#' Check order of multiple groups including non-overlapping SEM-margins
#'
#' \code{checkGrpOrderSEM} tests each line of 'x' if expected order of (replicate-) groups (defined in 'grp') appears intact,
#'  while inluding SEM of groups (replicates) via a proportional weight 'sdFact' as (avGr1-gr1SEM) < (avGr1+gr1SEM) < (avGr2-gr2SEM) < (avGr2+gr2SEM).  
#' Used for comparing groups of measures with expected profile (by matching expected order)
#' to check if data in 'x' represting groups ('grp') as lines follow.  
#' Groups of size=1: The sd (and SEM) can't be estimated directly without any replicates, however, an estimate can be given by shrinking if 'shrink1sampSd'=TRUE 
#' under the hypothesis that the overall mechanisms determining the variances is constant across all samples.
#' @param x matrix or data.frame
#' @param grp (factor) to organize replicate columns of (x)
#' @param sdFact (numeric) is proportional factor how many units of SEM will be used for defining lower & upper bounds of each group
#' @param revRank (logical) optionally revert ranks
#' @param shrink1sampSd (logical)
#' @param silent (logical) suppress messages
#' @param callFrom (character) allow easier tracking of message(s) produced
#' @return logical vector if order correct (as expected based on ranks)
#' @seealso takes only 10% more time than \code{\link[wrMisc]{checkGrpOrder}} wo considering intra-group sd 
#' @examples
#' mat1 <- matrix(rep(11:24,3)[1:40],byrow=TRUE,ncol=8)
#' checkGrpOrderSEM(mat1,grp=gl(3,3)[-1])
#' @export
