mark (this comma is a bit smarter than in the `icomma' package); the 
`mboxfill' package wraps TeX's hfill with leaders (all leader types are 
supported and one more case is provided --- stretched leaders); the 
`nccrules' package implements multiline dash rule command, dash rule 
fill command, and provides two commands generating new footnote rules 
(these rules are useful in the `manyfoot' package).

In the `nccmath' package, new medium-size commands are introduced: 
\mfrac is an intermediate fraction between \dfrac and \tfrac; \mbinom

integrals and sum-like operators; mmatrix and medsize environments allow 
smaller matrices and formulas.

`longtable' packages is provided; captions control is improved; \epigraph
