LaTeX Package: Locality 2010/06/29 v0.1
Various macros for keeping things local

Copyright (C) 2010
by Jason Gross <JasonGross9+locality@gmail.com>

  This package provides various macros to keep changes local to the current 
  group.  This allows one to (re)define helper macros without worrying about
  accidentally changing the functionality of another package's or the user's
  definitions.  Additionally, it allows recursive macros to have some
  definitions persist between calls, and others be local.

Recent changes:
 [Release 0.2]
  * Switched the order of tests in \manyaftergroup, eliminating an infinite loop.
  * Added \DeclareNonlocal*s, \pushvalues, \popvalues, \pushvalue, \popvalue, and a few others.
  * Fixed \DeclareNonlocal* to work with \aftergroup.
  * Added requirement for etoolbox, so that patching takes place at the end of the preamble.
 [Release 0.1]
  * Initial release.  Some macros untested.


  * README         -  this file
  * changes.txt    -  history of changes
  * locality.ins   -  for installation to get .sty from .dtx
  * locality.dtx   -  including sources and documentation
  * locality.pdf   -  print-ready documentation

[manual installation]
  * To get locality.sty out of locality.dtx
        $ latex locality.ins
  * To build documentation
        $ latex locality.dtx
  * Put the derived files in the proper directories:
      -  tex/latex/locality/locality.sty
      -  doc/latex/locality/locality.pdf
      -  source/latex/locality/locality.dtx

  * Use 'tlmgr' command
        $ tlmgr show locality          -- to check the package info
        $ sudo tlmgr update locality   -- to update the package
  * You can use 'TeX Live Utility' instead of 'tlmgr', if on MacOSX.
