hebclass 0.1: an initial release

hebclass is a package of Hebrew LaTeX classes for some documents. I 
generally intend them to be used as a basis for modifications. For that 
reason I avoided the use of docstrip: keeping the source and comments in 
one file makes hacking easier.

I tested them with recent version of heblatex from . 
Specifically, they use \hebalef rather than \alef, and thus will not work 
with heblatex 2.0c from babel. I hope to commit that version to babel 
soon .
