Defines functions loessList

Documented in loessList

#' List of loess models
#' @description Like \code{\link{nlsList}}, but for \code{\link{loess}}. Supports only a single grouping variable, with a formula of the form "y ~ x|group".
#' @param model Formula of the form y ~ x|group
#' @param data A dataframe containing the three variables
#' @param \dots Further arguments passed to \code{\link{loess}}, such as \code{span} and \code{degree}.
