#' @param pos Numeric vector containing the amount of money some people in the

#'   should have a name for each value.
#' @param neg Numeric vector containing the amount of money some people in the
#'   group should reimburse to balance the spendings. Idealy, the vector should
#'   have a name for each value.
#' 
#' @return A list of 2 numerical vectors. \code{Remb} contains the values that a set of people need to spend to reimburse the first person in the \code{pos} vector. \code{Reste} contains the value that each debtor has still to spend to reimburse the remaining people in the \code{pos} vector.
