This new version introduces a new internal representation as well as an entirely new API for desctable !
The original desctable function and usage remains until 1.0, but begins deprecation.

This new API is more flexible and more simple at the same time. Combine group_by, desc_table, desc_tests, and desc_output to create descriptive and comparative statistics tables and output them to various formats.

The internal representation is now a simple dataframe in the simple descriptive case, and a nested dataframe with list-columns for comparative tables, allowing easier manipulation by the user.
