Hi all!

I agree that manyfoot is very different package from other packages of 
ncctools collection. And it can be separated from other packages. What your 
suggestions are for movement the manyfoot package?

The manyfoot requires the nccfoots package but this requirement can be easy 
fixed. So, I thing the standalone manyfoot package will be much better for 
use. I can also delegate the further support and improvements of this 
package to persons working in this field.
