Summary description: Expandable operations on long numbers

Announcement text:

 Release 1.09c adds new features:

  * bool and togl are two new functions recognized by the
    \xintexpr parser. They act as in etoolbox boolean expressions
    (togl requires etoolbox, as it gives the truth value of the
    named toggle), and may be freely combined using the logic
    operators &, |, or functions all, any, xor, etc...

  * new conditional \xintifboolexpr {<expr>}{YES}{NO}, where
    <expr> is written in the \xintexpr recognized infix syntax, 

  * the (non-expandable) utility \xintApplyInline has been
    enhanced to be usable in contexts such as alignments where
    the applied macro may close groups,

  * \xintFor is a new kind of for loop: it uses #1, #2, #3, #4
    rather than macros to represent the (comma separated) list
    items; e.g. \xintFor #1 in {a,b,c} \do {\textbf{#1}}. Despite
    not being completely expandable, it is nestable, and usable
    to generate rows in alignments, as it survives the closing of
    groups via its replacement text,

  * \xintSeq expandably generates arithmetic sequences.

 Some other changes and code improvements, and improved documentation.
