Date: May 24, 2012 7:02:58 AM CEST
On Wed, 23 May 2012 Philip G. Rat­cliffe sub­mit­ted the xpunc­tu­ate pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: An ex­ten­sion of the "xs­pace" pack­age to in­clude pos­si­bly re­dun­dant pe­ri­ods and com­mas. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
This pack­age af­fords the user or pack­age writer post-macro punc­tu­a­tion in­ser­tion, \emph{i.e.}, be­yond (but sim­i­lar to) that of the "xs­pace" pack­age. Three new com­mands are de­fined: \xpe­riod, \xcomma and \xpe­ri­od­comma, which, fol­low­ing a sim­i­lar pro­ce­dure to the stan­dard \xs­pace macro, are de­signed to in­sert the rel­e­vant punc­tu­a­tion \emph{if and only if} nec­es­sary.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/xpunc­tu­ate . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/xpunc­tu­ate (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

xpunc­tu­ate – Pro­cess trail­ing punc­tu­a­tion which may be re­dun­dant

The pack­age pro­vides com­mands that en­able the user (or pack­age writer) to in­sert punc­tu­a­tion af­ter the macro. The method is sim­i­lar to that of xs­pace, but goes fur­ther.

The pack­age pro­vides the com­mands \xpe­riod, \xcomma and \xpe­ri­od­comma, which fol­low a sim­i­lar pro­ce­dure to that of \xs­pace, and in­sert punc­tu­a­tion if and only if it is nec­es­sary.
