comment How do I combine formatted page numbers in an index
Thank. As there is no TeX solution, I'll hack a script to clean up the idx file. I use splitindex which itself calls makeindex. Maybe I do not have to manually change the idx file with xindy, which looks better than makeindex but has its own drawbacks (biblatex replaces bibtex for good reason, but makeindex is still most used despite its problems).

comment How do I include all authors of cited works in an index of persons?
Great, thank you! I also managed to include people without given name (like "Aristotle"). The only nasty thing is a duplication of page numbers, if an author is both cited and mentioned explicitly at the same page. I suppose this cannot easily be solved in LaTeX but requires some filtering of the .idx files or some makeindex/xindy settings.

comment How to adjust font size or kerning to fit line width?
Thanks! The \SetExpansion and \microtypecontext solution did not work form me (I got "pdfTeX error (font expansion): using fonts with different limit of expansion in one paragraph is not allowed."), but \SetTracking solved the issue. I'll play around with more microtype options if needed.
