#' Survival Report
#' Generate a Survival Report with Kaplan-Meier Estimates
#' @param formula a formula with survival (\code{Surv}) objects on the left hand side and an optional stratification factor on the right (or \code{1} if none).  The survival object component variables should be labeled; these labels are used for graph annotation.  If any of the \code{Surv} objects are competing risk objects (see \code{\link[survival]{Surv}}), event labels come from the factor levels in the variable that was the second argument to \code{Surv}, and the first factor level must correspond to right-censored observations.
#' @param data data.frame
#' @param subset optional subsetting criteria
#' @param na.action function for handling \code{NA}s while creating a data frame
#' @param ylab character. Passed to \code{\link[rms]{survplot.npsurv}} as the \code{ylab} argument.  Constructed by default.
#' @param what \code{"S"} (the default) to plot survival functions or \code{"1-S"} to plot cumulative incidence functions.  If any of the survival time objects on the left hand side are competing risk objects, the default is \code{"1-S"} and you may not change it.
#' @param conf character. See \code{\link[rms]{survplot.npsurv}}.
#' @param cause character vector or list.  If a vector, every \code{Surv} term on the left hand side of \code{formula} will have cumulative incidence plotted for all causes that appear in \code{cause}.  If a list, the list elements must correspond to the \code{Surv} terms in order, and specify which causes to display from the corresponding \code{Surv} object.  When \code{cause} is a list and one of its elements contains more than one character string, or when \code{cause} is a vector and for one \code{Surv} object it matches multiple causes, \code{survReport} produces more plots than there are \code{Surv} objects.
#' @param panel character string.  Name of panel, which goes into file base names and figure labels for cross-referencing.
#' @param subpanel character string.  If calling \code{dReport} more than once for the same type of chart (categorical or continuous), specify \code{subpanel} to distinguish the multiple calls.  In that case, \code{-subpanel} will be appended to \code{panel} when creating figure labels and cross-references.
#' @param head character string.  Specifies initial text in the figure caption, otherwise a default is used.
#' @param tail optional character string.  Specifies final text in the figure caption, e.g., what might have been put in a footnote in an ordinary text page.  This appears just before any needles.
#' @param h numeric. Height of plots.
#' @param w numeric. Width of plots in inches.
#' @param multi logical.  If \code{TRUE}, multiple figures are produced, otherwise a single figure with a matrix of survival plots is made.
#' @param markevent logical.  Applies only if \code{multi=TRUE}.  Specify \code{FALSE} to not put the event label in the extreme upper left of the plot.
#' @param mfrow numeric 2-vector, used if \code{multi=FALSE}.  If not specified, default plot matrix layout will be figured.
#' @param y.n.risk used if \code{what="1-S"}, to specify \code{y} coordinate for putting numbers at risk, typically below the \code{x}-axis label
#' @param mylim numeric 2-vector.  Used to force expansion of computed y-axis limits.  See \code{survplot}.
#' @param bot number of spaces to reserve at bottom of plot for numbers at risk, if \code{what="1-S"}
#' @param aehaz logical.  Set to \code{FALSE} to not print number of events and hazard rate on plots.
#' @param times numeric vector.  If specified, prints cumulative incidence probabilities at those times on the plots.
#' @param append logical. If \code{TRUE} output will be appended instead of overwritten.
#' @param opts list.  A list specifying arguments to \code{survReport} and \code{startPlot} that override any other arguments.  This is useful when making a long series of \code{survReport} calls with the same options, as the options can be defined up front in a list.
