Summary description: Tools for drawing Euclidean geometry

Announcement text:

The version 4 of tkz-euclide is important because the package becomes an
independent tool from my old packages, in particular tkz-base. A version of
tkz-base v 4 is required to use both packages.  It is intended mainly to create
Euclidean geometry figures.  In the codes and in the documentation, I have put
forward my rule : set, calculate, draw and fill ,mark and label.

Some new macros have appeared, others (secondary) have disappeared. The only
important constraint to transfer the code from version 3 to 4 is to remove the
unit "cm".  Now the bounding box is controlled; in most cases it is not
necessary to use the tkzInit and tkzClip macros.

Some changes have been made to make the syntax more homogeneous and especially
to distinguish the definition and search for coordinates from the rest, i.e.
drawing, marking and labelling. The introduction of new macros to manage styles
is a new step.

Next step ...
In the future, the definition macros being isolated, it will be easier to
introduce a phase of coordinate calculations using Lua.

I’m sorry but the list of changes and novelties is made in the greatest disorder!
This version must be considered as beta because I worked alone.
