Summary description: Draw particle accelerator lattices with TikZ.

Announcement text:

 The tikz-palattice package allows for drawing a map of a
 particle accelerator just by giving a list of elements -
 similar to lattice files for simulation software.
 The package includes 12 common element types like dipoles,
 quadrupoles, cavities or screens, as well as automatic labels
 with element names, a legend, a rule and an environment to fade
 out parts of the accelerator. The coordinate of any element can
 be saved and used for custom tikz drawings or annotations.
 Thereby, lattices can be connected to draw injection/extraction
 or even a complete accelerator facility.
