How the add-in function works
-----------------------------

  There are two kinds of add-in.  "Option add-in" returns the LaTeX's
optional parameters such as optional strings after `\begin{ENV}', optional
strings between a section-type command and its first argument, and
optional strings just after type maketitle-type command.  The following
illustrates the name of add-in functions, where underlined strings are
generated by add-in functions.

     \begin{table}[ht]		(Function name: YaTeX:table)
                  ~~~~
     \put(100,200){}		(Function name: YaTeX:put)
         ~~~~~~~~~
     \sum_{i=0}^{n}		(Function name: YaTeX:sum)
         ~~~~~~~~~~

  Obviously, the function name is decided by concatenating the prefix
`YaTeX:' and LaTeX command's name.

  Another add-in type is "argument add-in", which completes arguments for
section-type commands.

     \newcommand{\foo}{bar}	(Function name: YaTeX::newcommand)
                 ~~~~  ~~~

  When the section-type command is inputted, the function named by
concatenating `YaTeX::' and section-type command, is called automatically
with an integer argument which indicates which argument of section-type
command is being read.  Thus the add-in should determine the job referring
the value of its argument.
