Summary description:  Bundle together all the files needed to build a LaTeX document

Announcement text:
 bundledoc is a post-processor for the snapshot package that bundles
 together all the classes, packages, and files needed to build a
 given LaTeX document.  It reads the .dep file that snapshot produces,
 finds each of the files mentioned therein, and archives them into a
 single .tar.gz (or .zip, or whatever) file, suitable for moving
 across systems, transmitting to a colleague, etc.

 As an added bonus, this distribution includes a small script called
 arlatex.  arlatex is a LaTeX-specific archiving program that combines
 a bunch of files into a single .tex file.  When the .tex file is run
 through latex, all of the original files are recreated and the LaTeX
 document is built.  bundledoc can be easily configured to use arlatex
 as its archiver in place of tar, zip, etc.

 This release represents a minor update to arlatex to make it use
 LaTeX's enhanced filecontents environment.
 Thanks to Neil A. McKay for pointing out that arlatex's
 documentation regarding filecontents was outdated.
