I recently had a long argument wrt the survival package, namely that the following code
didn't do what they expected, and so they reported it as a bug
survival::coxph( survival::Surv(time, status) ~ age + sex + survival::strata(inst),
a. The Google R style guide recommends that one put :: everywhere
b. This breaks the recognition of cluster as a "special" in the terms function.
I've been stubborn and said that their misunderstanding of how formulas work is not my
problem. But I'm sure that the issue will come up again, and multiple other packages
A big problem is that the code runs, it just gives the wrong answer.
