Summary description: A crossover of align* and enumerate

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The gatherenum package (ab)uses the inline enumeration capabilities of
enumitem to add a « displayed » enumeration mode, triggered by adding
|gathered| to the key-val option list of the enumerate environment.
The end result is similar to a regular enumerate environment wrapped
in a multicols environment, with the following advantages:

* gathered enumerate can pack items depending on their actual width
rather than a fixed, constant number per line.

* it fills items in a line-major order (instead of column-major order),
which my students found less confusing.
YMMV.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at

The package’s files themselves can be inspected at

You mean
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
instead of
1 4 7
2 5 8
3 6 9
?
