I'd like to stretch long lists into two or more columns. Like:

Some single-column text.

  1. Lorem 4. Sit
  2. Ipsum 5. Amet
  3. Dolor

Another single-column text.

Or:

Some single-column text.

1) Lorem 2) Ipsum
3) Dolor 4) Sit
5) Amet

Another single-column text.

for input file containing:

Some single-column text.
\begin{foo}{2}
\begin{itemize}
 \item Lorem
 \item Ipsum
 \item Dolor
 \item Sit
 \item Amet 
\end{itemize}
\end{foo}
Another single-column text.

Thanks for any idea that can help.

multicol package provides multicols environment.

% \usepackage{multicol}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\begin{itemize}
 \item Lorem
 \item Ipsum
 \item Dolor
 \item Sit
 \item Amet 
\end{itemize}
\end{multicols}

You may want to add a \item[] at the end to obtain better spacing.
