Despite my not knowing whether the release of a new LaTeX2e*-y package is that much to mention anymore---Frank's mail the other day sounded like at least template and something like xhj was fairly close to getting properly released, and I would consider that a Good Thing---I'd still like to announce the availability of my own docindex/docidx2e package, which can be found on CTAN in macros/latex/exptl/xdoc/ since about a day. The functionality provided by this package is formatting of indices (and the like); it is primarily geared towards the index and list of changes of a .dtx file. From the more general perspective of LaTeX2e* development I suspect that the most interesting feature of the docindex package is that there is also a docidx2e package, which is docindex "downgraded" to work without any LaTeX2e* packages but still following the same general logic. I believe the comparison of programming styles can elucidate the advantages there are with the templated style (even for those who have mastered the classical style). I also think the markup of template definitions etc. came out quite well. People who are themselves writing templated packages may find it worth while to take a look at the typeset sources for that reason alone.
