mockthat: Function Mocking for Unit Testing in R

With the deprecation of mocking capabilities shipped with 'testthat' as of 'edition 3' it is left to third-party packages to replace this functionality, which in some test-scenarios is essential in order to run unit tests in limited environments (such as no Internet connection). Mocking in this setting means temporarily substituting a function with a stub that acts in some sense like the original function (for example by serving a HTTP response that has been cached as a file). The only exported function 'with_mock()' is modeled after the eponymous 'testthat' function with the intention of providing a drop-in replacement.
