Documented in sortedNeighbors

#' Perform a single iteration of sorted neighbors.
#'
#' \code{sortedNeighbors} sorts the input data frame on the specified sort key
#' and returns all neighbors within a specified window.
#'
#' @param dat Data frame. Data used for sorting and discovering neighbors.
#' @param key Integer or character vector. The columns on which to construct the sort key.
#' @param windowSN Integer value. Size of sliding window to use during sorted neighbrs.
#' @param ID Integer or character value. Identifiable column in dat.
#' @return A data frame with 2 columns and n rows, each row containing neighbor pairs.
