Summary description:  Encoding notational conventions

Announcement text:

 This is a major upgrade (hence 'new package') to the pkg oops,
 a tool for encoding notational conventions. The name change
 (Custom COntent Oriented for LaTeX) reflects better the purpose
 and the genealogy of this package (1).
 In particular, the interface it not backward compatible due critical changes:
 - to conform to xparse's recommendations
 - in favor of simplification
 - to allow new features

 The new features are:
 - Read/Write so notation that is created in one document can be used by another
 - An option to make side effect persist after local group
 - Versatile separators
 - Support for lambda expressions

 - More thorough testing, across 3 compilers
 - More relevant listings

 (this evolution is recorded in the doc under Change history)

 Kind regards.

 (1) The author of the 2005 pkg cool was notified on 04/11:
     "Just want to make sure I represented it faithfully,
     and that you don't mind the name offshoot off of yours."
