Defines functions annotate

Documented in annotate

#' Create an annotation layer
#'
#' This function adds geoms to a plot, but unlike typical a geom function,
#' the properties of the geoms are not mapped from variables of a data frame,
#' but are instead passed in as vectors. This is useful for adding small annotations
#' (such as text labels) or if you have your data in vectors, and for some
#' reason don't want to put them in a data frame.
#'
#' Note that all position aesthetics are scaled (i.e. they will expand the
#' limits of the plot so they are visible), but all other aesthetics are
#' set. This means that layers created with this function will never
#' affect the legend.
#'
#' @param geom name of geom to use for annotation
#' @param x,y,xmin,ymin,xmax,ymax,xend,yend positioning aesthetics -
#'   you must specify at least one of these.
#' @inheritParams layer
#' @inheritParams geom_point
#' @export
