When working with geospatial data, it's common to need to bring in data from .dbf files.

foreign::read.dbf is generally fine, but it would be nice to have a reader for such files inside haven as well (for consistency in arguments as well as being centrally available).

This is out of scope for haven, which wraps the ReadStat library (which does not support dbf files)
