On Thu, 31 Mar 2005, Hendri Adriaens submitted new versions of

  xkeyval and extract

to CTAN.

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.

xkeyval v2.4
 1) Added `default value' column to xkvview tables.
 2) Added nesting protection for internal conditionals.
 3) Changed \define at boolkey to have an explicit key function.
 4) Extended boolean keys.
 5) Extended choice keys.
 6) Inserted pst-xkey in xkeyval source.
 7) Removed command keys.
 8) Revised documentation and examples.
 9) Simplified some code.
 10) Updated xkvview.
 11) Solved small bug related to \XKV at rm.
 12) Redid \XKV at wh@list without using groups.

The extract package provides the means to extract specific content from a 
source document and write that to a target document. One could, for 
instance, use this to extract all exercises from lecture notes and 
generate an exercises book on the fly.
