> o The new `lsm' request specifies a macro to be invoked when leading spaces

>   registers `lsn' and `lss' hold the number of removed leading spaces and
>   the corresponding horizontal space, respectively.
> o There is a new warning category `file', enabled by default.  The `mso'
>   request emits warnings in this category when the requested macro file
> does not exist.
> o The new `class' request assigns a short name to a set of characters
>   which can be referred to in the `cflags' request.  This is especially
>   useful to control line-breaking and hyphenation rules in CJK languages.
> o Three new values for the `cflags' request have been added, which are
>   needed for proper CJK support.

>   the necessary setup to allow line breaks before and after CJK characters
>   (with proper exceptions).  Note, however, that no inter-character spacing
>   is implemented yet -- this usually causes many warnings about bad line
