Summary description: A method for declaring new PGF shapes
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

This package simplifies writing PGF shapes.

Declaring custom shapes with correct anchor borders can be difficult. Complex 
shapes often need complicated calculations to find the touching point of a 
connecting line. This package only requires that a developer write a PGF path 
describing the anchor border. It also provides macros that help with the 
management of shape parameters, and the definition of anchor points.
