[Rd] argument handling in boot.ci

boot.ci fails to check if the "type" argument is valid or not. This tripped me up when I had a script that called boot.ci(type="normal",...) repeatedly - only later when I tried to do some further analysis did I realise I'd got nothing useful back from boot.ci.

It strikes me that this behaviour is probably incorrect, and that boot.ci should stop if the "type" argument (or, indeed, any other supplied argument) is invalid. Am I correct?
