Summary description: Prepare a package for upload to CTAN

Announcement text:

ctanify is intended for developers of LaTeX packages who want to 
distribute their packages via the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network
(CTAN).  Given a list of filenames, ctanify creates a tarball (a .tar.gz 
file) with the files laid out in CTAN's preferred structure.
The tarball additionally contains a ZIP (.zip) file with copies of all 
files laid out in the standard TeX Directory Structure (TDS),
which facilitates inclusion of the package in the TeX Live distribution of 

By popular demand, version 1.9 adds a --no-tds option to suppress 
inclusion of the ZIP file in the tarball.
