And packages supporting black overprint because to preview overprint
even AA Professional is required and to use it commercial
phototypesetters are required. Should I remove black overprint code
from my package and move it to another package that will be on CTAN
but not in TL? It will make the maintanance more difficult because
some parts would have to be doubled and it will depend on the order of
loading the packages.
