Dear R contributors,

I suggest adding a new method to `p.adjust` ("Adjust P-values for Multiple

This new method is published in Benjamini, Krieger, Yekutieli 2016 Adaptive
linear step-up procedures that control the false discovery rate
(Biometrika). https://doi.org/10.1093/biomet/93.3.491

This paper described multiple methods for adjusting p-values, where the "TST"
method (Definition 6) performed the best when test statistics are
positively correlated, per my interpretation. This method can be labeled as
"BKY", for the three authors Benjamini, Krieger, Yekutieli.

I apologize if this is a duplication.
