Announcement text: 

The stackengine package provides a versatile way to vertically stack objects in 
a variety of customizable ways.  A number of useful macros are provided, all of 
which make use of the stackengine core.  These macros allow a wide variety of 
tasks, including:

-creating aligned stacks of specified inter-item gap;

-creating aligned stacks of specified inter-item baselinse shift;

-stacking both above and below the baseline; 

-overlaying character glyphs; 

-insetting graphical images atop larger background images; 

-top and bottom lapping; shifting the horizontal axis of a stack;

-changing the baseline of an object; 

-subfigure labeling;

This package is primarily intended for text mode, thought it can be adapted for use in math mode.
