Thanks. I will not comment about other patches in this set, but I will
do about this one.

This is not a "trivial" package. It contains a ".dtx" file, that you
need to run in order to generate the runfiles.

As a rule of thumb, if the importer, which I assume you used, doesn't
set #:trivial keyword, you shouldn't either.

I suggest to use @code{...} around LaTeX commands. Also, the last
sentence in not complete.
