TAN update: dozenal

Donald P. Goodman submitted an update to the

                dozenal

package.

Version number: 6.0
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Typeset documents using base twelve numbering
(also called "dozenal")

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
For version 6.0, added the "\doznumtowords" macro, which
will take a counter and output it in dozenal words.  Which
words it uses can be customized; I have made no attempt to
internationalize this with different languages, because I
haven't the foggiest how to do so other than simply writing
option packs with different definitions in them.  Also did a
complete rewrite of |\basex|, so its workings are now
(almost) comprehensible.  Finally, darkened the tally marks
and put in hand-written italic shapes.
