Summary description:  Semantic mathematics

Announcement text:
 A very big update that includes a complete rewriting of the
 keyval machinery. This, together with other optimizations,
 makes individual equations run about six times faster than
 before, and whole documents with lots of SemanTeX become about
 twice faster. At the same time, the system is much more robust,
 removing the need for \noexpand’s all over the place.
 Old documents should run after you remove \noexpand’s in your
 keyval setup.
 I consider the system close to feature-complete, the next
 project will be to make the manual better and more complete.
