Summary description:  Drop-in replacement for ‘ocgx’ and ‘ocgx-p’

Announcement text:

 `ocgx2' is a drop-in replacement for the already existing packages
 `ocgx' by Paul Gaborit and `ocg-p' by Werner Moshammer for the creation
 of PDF Layers, which comes with a number of improvements:
  * support for dvips->ps2pdf
  * PDF layers extending over page breaks (even nested layers)
  * Radio Button Groups of PDF Layers
  * NEW: re-implementation of Hyperref's `ocgcolorlinks` option,
         for the creation of coloured hyperlinks that can extend
         over line AND page breaks (based on B. Lerners's code
         suggested in http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/47309)
  * `ocgcolorlinks' supporting dvips (not breakable, however)
