##### Time windows for mcmc objects

window.mcmc is a method for mcmc objects which is normally called by the generic function window

In addition to the generic parameters, start and end the additional parameter thin may be used to thin out the Markov chain. Setting thin=k selects every kth iteration starting with the first. Note that the value of thin is absolute not relative. The value supplied given to the parameter thin must be a multiple of thin(x).

Values of start, end and thin which are inconsistent with x are ignored, but a warning message is issued.
