Announcement text: 

This small package provides macros which collect the cell content of
a tabular and provide it to a macro as argument. It was inspired by the
\collect at body macro defined by the amsmath or the environ package,
which can be used to collect the body of an environment. Special care
is taken to remove all aligning macros inserted by tabular from the cell
content. The macros also work in the last column of a table. 
They do not support verbatim material inside the cells.
