##' @title Count Unique Features
##' 
##' @description
##' 
##' This function counts the number of unique features per sample. A 
##' grouping structure can be provided to count higher level features
##' from assays, for example counting the number of unique proteins 
##' from PSM data. 
##'
##' @param object An object of class `QFeatures`.
##'
##' @param i  A `numeric()` or `character()` vector indicating from 
##'     which assays the `rowData` should be taken.
##'
##' @param groupBy A `character(1)` indicating the variable name in 
##'     the `rowData` that contains the grouping variable, for 
##'     instance to count the unique number of peptides or proteins 
##'     expressed in each samples (column). If `groupBy` is missing, 
##'     the number of non zero elements per sample will be stored.
##'     
##' @param colDataName A `character(1)` giving the name of the new 
##'     variable in the `colData` where the number of unique features
##'     will be stored. The name cannot already exist in the 
##'     `colData`.
##'
##' @export
##'
##' @return An object of class `QFeatures`.
