Summary description: This package helps to fix insufficient number of write
registers.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The io registers in TeX are often a matter of severe
limitation. When we try to typeset a document that loads a
lot of packages, it becomes a non-trivial task to satisfy
register requirements of various packages that compete each
other. It is further complicated, if refining the typeset
copy involves usage of more custom packages which want to
write out a few streams for reading during subsequent TeX
compilations. LaTeX needs a few registers by default, some
of the packages might need a few more streams thereby
reducing the available number of registers to less than ten.
At times, we have been forced to comment out a few write 
registers which are seemingly unused for the document in
question to make available necessary registers for our
custom packages. But, this is not an elegant way, also, it
requires developer intervention during the production
process. A package namely, rvwrite.sty, is written to solve
this nagging problem.
