[R-sig-Geo] Question about the anisotropy factor in the sum metric spatiotemporalcovariance gstat

Dear Sara,

the anisotropy in the metric spatio-temporal covariance models describes 
how spatial distances relate to temporal distance (i.e. to answer the 
question: At which temporal separation (x hours/days/weeks/...) do have 
two locations 1 m/km/... apart the same correlation?). Every model that 
includes the metric model has to have a spatio-temporal anisotropy 
parameter. For more details, please refer to the vignette of gstat [1].
