Summary description: \listfiles alignment for connoisseurs
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
While `longnamefilelist.sty' improves LaTeX's \listfiles with respect 
to long base filenames only, the present `nicefilelist.sty' 
'nicefilelist.sty' can keep separate columns for 
(i) date (ii) version, and (iii) "caption" 
(don't write caption text in date column), 
their alignment not being disturbed by short filename extensions 
such as `.fd'. This is achieved basing on the `monofill' package.

Thus `nicefilelist' is more "powerful" than `longnamefilelist', the 
former however is an "extension" of the latter neither with respect 
to implementation nor with respect to user interface. See documentatin for details.

The shortcomings of `longnamefilelist' were pointed out by Martin Muench.
