#' Calculate xts from scored corpus
#' 
#' @param corpus Scored corpus from which \code{xts} object should be generated, see \code{\link{score}}
#' @param fieldnames Fieldnames to be used from \code{DMetaData(corpus)}, defaults to DMetaData(corpus)
#' @param period Period unit of xts time series object to be returned, defaults to "days", see \code{endpoints}
#' @param k, Period length of xts time series object to be returned, defaults to 1, see \code{endpoints}
#' @param  aggFUN Aggregation function to be used for meta fields, defaults to mean
#' @param symbol \code{xts} object to be merged with sentiment time series, preferably \code{OHLC} time series
#' @param prefix Character string specifying prefix of resulting sentiment time series column names
#' @param join Join which should be performed if symbol is specified
#' @param na.omit remove NA's from resulting time series, see \code{\link{na.omit}}
