Summary description:  Name authority mechanism for consistency in body text and index

Announcement text:

 I am pleased to announce the release of nameauth 3.0.
 This extensive redesign of the package brings greater simplicity,
 compactness, and power.
 Notable feature additions include:

 * Alternate names are available for both Western names and
   comma-delimited non-Western names.

 * The index macros generate both `see' and `see also' types of references.
   More can be done in terms of index management.

 * Writing custom name format hooks has been simplified greatly.

 * In most cases, the package remains backward-compatible with
   earlier versions through the use of package options.

 The modular redesign of the package has reduced its size by over
 100 lines even after adding features. Distinct paths exist for
 printing names in the text, putting page entries in the index,
 and putting cross-references into the index.
