Bruno Le Floch submitted the


package to CTAN.

Summary description: Variations on the expandafter primitive
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

Macros meant to avoid using too many \expandafter.  Should hopefully be 
compatible with plain, LaTeX and ConTeXt, but requires eTeX's \numexpr.

This was written before I had understood LaTeX3's variant mechanism, and I 
advise people who fight with expansion to use LaTeX3 rather than multiexpand.
