Summary description: Simple commands for drawing customisable dice

Announcement text:

customdice is a package for LaTeX, LuaLaTeX and XeTeX that provides
functionality for drawing dice. The aim is to provide highly-customisable but
simple-to-use commands, allowing:

- adding custom text to dice faces;
- control over colouring;
- control over sizing.

I've long struggled to find a dice package I fully like. I have been using
epsdice, but it only offers white or black standard dice and I found I wanted to
draw dice with other text on the faces so I wrote this package which draws the
dice in TikZ and offers lots of customisation around what is displayed on the
dice face, colour and size.
