expex-glossonly – Help gb4e, linguex, and covington users use the ExPex glossing macros

The ExPex package by John Frampton provides very fine-grained control over glossing and example formatting, including unlimited gloss lines and various ways of formatting multiline glosses. By contrast the cgloss4e glossing macros provided with gb4e, linguex, and covington, although very capable at basic glossing, lack the degree of customization that is sometimes needed for more complex glossing.

On the other hand, for those users who have heavily invested in using either gb4e or linguex, or covington, shifting to ExPex can be quite daunting and burdensome, especially since the basic syntax of the examples is quite different.

This package is an attempt to have the best of both worlds: it allows gb4e, linguex and covington users to keep using those packages for basic example numbering and formatting, but also allows them to use the glossing macros that ExPex provides.
