Summary description:  Extended file name support for graphics (legacy package)

Announcement text:
 Recent changes in LaTeX and specifically the release
         LaTeX2e <2019-10-01> patch level 2
 mean that most of the facilities of grffile are not needed,
 also the changes mean that some of the original patches
 made by this package no longer work.

 This package is now a legacy package that by default just
 loads the standard graphicx package.

 The LaTeX package rollback feature is enabled so that
 may be used to access version 1(.18) of the package if
 that is needed.
