interfaces – Set parameters for other packages, conveniently

The package provides a small number of convenient macros that access features in other frequently-used packages, or provide interfaces to other useful facilities such as the pdf \pdfelapsedtime primitive. Most of these macros use pgfkeys to provide a key-value syntax. The package also uses the package scrlfile from the Koma-Script bundle (for controlled loading of other files) and etoolbox.

The package is bundled with sub-packages containing actual interfaces: by default, the package loads all available sub-packages, but techniques are provided for the user to select no more than the interfaces needed for a job.
