morewrites – Always room for a new write stream

The package aims to solve the error “No room for a new \write”, which occurs when the user, or when the user’s packages have ‘allocated too many streams’ using \newwrite ( has a fixed maximum number – 16 – such streams built-in to its code). The package hooks into primitive commands associated with writing to files; it should be loaded near the beginning of the sequence of loading packages for a document.

The package uses the l3kernel bundle.
