Summary description: Spot colours support for XeLaTeX

Announcement text:

A spot color is one that is printed with its own ink. 
Typically, printers use spot colors in the production 
of books or other printed material. The spotcolor package
by Jens Elstner is a first attempt to introduce the use of 
spot colors with pdfLaTeX. The xespotcolor package is a 
reimplementation of this package so to be usable with 
XeLaTeX. As such, it has the same user interface and 
the same capabilities.

Currently, xdvipdfm-x does not support the spot command, 
which is needed in order to be able top use commands like 
the following one:


File PATCHES contains patches that should be applied to the 
source code of xdvipdfm-x so to be able to deal with such 
commands. Also, file spotcolor-test.tex is test file based on 
the documentation of the original package. Finally, file 
spotcolor-test.pdf cannot be produced with a current TeX 
installation. When the source code of xdvipdfm-x will be 
updated, then the contents of this folder will change.
