```#' Perform a linear combination of posterior samples
#'
#' @param lin_comb A string specifying a linear combination of variables, or a list of variable names if using \code{contrast}.
#'
#' @param obj An object of class \code{BGGM}, \code{bbcor}, or a \code{data.frame} of posterior samples.
#'
#' @param ci The level for which a credible interval should be computed.
#'
#' @param rope Specify a ROPE. Optional.
#'
#' @param contrast A contrast matrix specifying which combinations to test.
