provDebugR: A Time-Travelling Debugger

Uses provenance post-execution to help the user understand and debug their script by providing functions to look at intermediate steps and data values, their forwards and backwards lineage, and to understand the steps leading up to warning and error messages. 'provDebugR' uses provenance produced by 'rdtLite' (available on CRAN), stored in PROV-JSON format.
