beastier: Call 'BEAST2'

'BEAST2' (<>) is a widely used Bayesian phylogenetic tool, that uses DNA/RNA/protein data and many model priors to create a posterior of jointly estimated phylogenies and parameters. 'BEAST2' is a command-line tool. This package provides a way to call 'BEAST2' from an 'R' function call.
