Defines functions waggle

Documented in waggle

#' Waggle back and forth between two numbers
#'
#' @param min A minimum value.
#' @param max A maximum value.
#' @param value Starting value. Defaults to half-way between \code{min} and
#'   \code{max}.
#' @param step How much value changes at each frame. Defaults to 50 steps
#'   between min and max so it takes 5 seconds to waggle once.
#' @param fps number of frames per second.
#' @export
#' @examples
#' span <- waggle(0.2, 1)
#' mtcars %>% ggvis(~mpg, ~wt) %>%
#'  layer_points() %>%
#'  layer_smooths(span = span)
