Summary description: macros and commands for chemists

Announcement text:

changes with v4.0:
 - the packages `chemformula' and `ghsystem' do not load
   `chemmacros' any more which means they can be used
 - the option `bpchem' has been dropped.
 - the commands \mch and \pch now match `chemformula's charges.
 - the option `method' has been dropped.
 - the option `append' has deprecated.
 - the option `greek' has been extended to support other uppercase
   greek letters, for example those provided by `kpfonts'.  This is
   handled internally by the new package in the family: `chemgreek'.
   This package is not really a package for usage at a user-level
   but could in principle be used to extend the `greek' option.
 - language support is now done with the help of the `translations'
   package from the `exsheets' bundle. This means that with v4.0 the
   document language is recognized automatically.
 - the status of the commands \Lfi and \Dfi has been changed
   from /deprecated/ to /dropped/.
 - various other changes like bug fixes and improvements on the
   typographical appearance of `chemformula's inline formulae with
 - every package in the bundle got its own documentation file but the
   German and Italian version of the manuals are no longer provided
