An example of a non-CTAN package that is worth using is Paul Taylor's  
{diagrams}, for commutative diagrams and such.  One of the best  
solutions to this issue (especially after fine-tuning some  
typographical options rather than using the defaults).  It's not on  
CTAN, and has its quirks:  not really open-source (the .sty source is  
unreadable, on purpose), a weird license, and time-bombed.
Nonetheless, as I said, one of the best ways of typesetting  
commutative diagrams, so: whatcha gonna do?
