Summary description: Advancing many counters simultaneously

Announcement text:

Announcement of original upload (v. 0.1):

  This package provides some commands to handle associated
  counters that will be stepped if a driver counter (say page
  or chapter) is increased by \stepcounter.  The driven counters
  can be given as a CSV list to the `\DeclareAssociatedCounters┬┤
  command and will be increased, even if the driver counter is
  reset in the meantime.

  \RemoveAssociatedCounters will remove the specified counters
  from the update list.

  See the comments in the style file and the
  assoccnt_example.tex/assoccnt_example.pdf for usage and
  further explanation.

  This package can be used in conjunction with `totcount` to
  provide real total values of a counter, as long as no direct
  manipulation to an associated counter is done via
  `\setcounter` or `\addtocounter`.

Announcement of v. 0.2:

  A better error handling has been introduced

  Multiple specification of an associated counter is prevented

  The macro \IfIsAssociatedCounter is introduced

  Documentation added in assoccnt.pdf
