  xkeyval 1.9 and pst-xkey 1.3

The xkeyval package is an extension of the keyval package and offers
additional macros for setting keys and declaring and setting class or
package options.  The package allows the programmer to specify a prefix to
the name of the macros it defines for keys, and to define families of key
definitions; these all help use in documents where several packages define
their own sets of keys.

The pst-xkey package is an adaptation of the techniques of xkeyval to the
needs of the family of packages associated with pstricks, so that those
packages can safely, and with relative ease, use key-value syntax in their

This is the last update of the xkeyval bundle for now. I
will maintain the package though when problems come up and
might implement new features if there are any requests.
