#' Calculate overlaps between all pairs of a hypervolume list
#' Find all pairwise intersections, unions, etc., between elements in a hypervolume list.
#' @param hv.list Object of class 'HypervolumeList'.
#' @param what Options are "jaccard" or "sorensen".
#' @param cores The number of cores to use for parallel processing. 
#' @details Makes the assumption that the hv.list was loaded in with loadHypervolumes,
#' and that the Name elements in the list are of the form 'Genus_species.RDS'. Function
#' only calculates the set of {i,j}, not {j,i}. Because of the way
#' hypervolume_set works, these values can change slightly, so some precision is
#' lost here. Prints progress to screen.
#' @return Matrix with rownames and colnames corresponding to the input hv.list, and
#' the elements filled in according to the specified 'what'.
#' @export
#' @references Blonder, B., C. Lamanna, C. Violle, and B. J. Enquist. 2014.
