Summary description:  Support for Cooperative Writing and editorial comments

Announcement text:
 coop-writing, for Cooperative Writing, supports editorial comments
 and gives some extra support for writing and submitting papers,
 such as anonymization commands for any document that involves
 more than one author or editor. 

 The general behavior of this package is to provide different ways
 of marking your text, for example with comments or to do notes,
 suggestions to add, remove or change text that can be totally
 supressed from the output when desired.
 Mostly, this can be easily done using one of the three main
 option states: editing, submit, and publish. 

 Users should use the editing state most of the time.
 In this state, all markings will appear and the anonymization
 will be off. When submitting, the submit state will provide
 a clean article, without any markings, but anonymized.
 It is possible to use  the options submit and noanonymize
 together. Publish will never anonymize. The goal is to make
 the submit and publish documents states minimally invasive,
 to avoid any clash with publishers’ styles. 

 Commands were inspired from different packages that don’t work
 together very well, such as ed, todonotes and color-edits.
