MASSExtra: Some 'MASS' Enhancements

Some enhancements, extensions and additions to the facilities of the recommended 'MASS' package that are useful mainly for teaching purposes, with more convenient default settings and user interfaces. Key functions from 'MASS' are imported and re-exported to avoid masking conflicts. In addition we provide some additional functions mainly used to illustrate coding paradigms and techniques, such as Gramm-Schmidt orthogonalisation and generalised eigenvalue problems.
