Summary description: Fix color problems with the package “framed”

Announcement text:

Initial release restored in passing the titled-frame environment of framed.sty 
from a breakage induced some years ago by an upstream LaTeX change.  But due to 
an oversight the (restored) layout was not exactly the same as the original.  
This is fixed here.

Also, as further problems emerged with this environment after I had started 
experimenting with it, a need for some alternative macros appeared, and they 
have been added to the package with no change to original.

In the initial announcement it was said the package would be enriched at some 
point by an environment based on pict2e-based boxes.  Since then, I have become 
aware of package longfbox which provides precisely such boxes.  How this could 
or should or would interact with the present package is not clear at this time. 
Besides I feel now that if I do any such thing, it should be in yet another 

So development should now be quiet.  Issue reports and feature requests are 
welcome at the repo site.
