-- This module produces and formats lists for use in hatnotes. In particular, --
-- it implements the for-see list, i.e. lists of "For X, see Y" statements,   --
-- as used in {{about}}, {{redirect}}, and their variants. Also introduced    --
-- are andList & orList helpers for formatting lists with those conjunctions. --
