No I hadn't, thanks for the pointer. I looked at it now, at least the
pdf guide, and it doesn't quite seem like it would do what I want it
to do. Here is an example of what I'd like. A LaTeX code that looks
something like the following:

\begin{options}
\option Not really
\option Somewhat
\option Very much
\end{options}

Then this ideally would end up looking in both of the following two
ways, depending on some easy option somewhere that I should be
allowed to set:

one way:

Not really (little box to tick here)        Somewhat (another box
here)       Very much   (another box here)

the other way:

Not really _____________    Somewhat ______________    Very much
_______________

A cursory glance at the package did not really show me that it has
the commands to do something like that, but perhaps I missed it.
