Summary description: Embed XMP metadata within a LaTeX document

Announcement text:

XMP (eXtensible Metadata Platform) is a mechanism proposed by Adobe for
embedding document metadata within the document itself.  The metadata are
designed to be easy to extract, even by programs that are oblivious to the
document's file format.  Most of Adobe's applications store XMP metadata when
saving files.  Now, with the hyperxmp package, it is trivial for LaTeX document
authors to store XMP metadata in their documents as well.

hyperxmp integrates seamlessly with hyperref and requires virtually no
modifications to documents that already exploit hyperref's mechanisms for
specifying PDF metadata.  hyperxmp can embed a wide variety of metadata as XMP,
including the list of authors, document title, contact information (telephone
number, postal address, email address, etc.), copyright statement, keywords,
natural language, and much more.  hyperxmp is compatible with pdflatex,
lualatex, xelatex, latex+dvipdfm, and latex+dvips+Distiller.

Since the previous release, hyperxmp has fixed a handful of bugs and
incorporated the following two modifications.  First, hyperxmp disables itself
if LaTeX3 document metadata is available.  (Document metadata implies the
presence of PDF management, which completely breaks hyperxmp.)  Second,
hyperxmp uses \thetotalpages to compute the page count in an engine-independent
