comment How can I apply actions to specific items or after specific items in a sequence in LaTeX3?
@Manuel +1 That is not good news. It seems the only way to do it with a sequence is to create a loop that generates variables to store each item, and then another loop that "pops" each item into those variables. Then one or more loops to handle actions for the other items. Quite a bit of work for such a simple task.

@egreg Could you maybe help me to understand why you think it is vague? I think you are likely the most qualified person to answer this question. I really like the flexibility of keys, and I think they could have many other useful applications. I am thinking that the solution might include a pgf foreach` loop or makedo loop. (of course that is based on my limited understanding of the LaTeX 3 syntax.

@egreg hmm. well I tried to be specific. I just wanted to know how it would be done. It seems like a reasonable thing to be able to do (access items and manipulate them based on counts).

comment How can I create a list as a variable that can be appended and eventually typeset?
I don't see how the #1 is transferred to l_macmadness_list_#1_seq in \cs_new_protected:Npn. Could you explain that?

comment How can I get a count of the optional arguments with xparse?
I meant, can I compile this document on a machine with an older version of LaTeX, just by installing the expl3 package. I think I already found my answer though, and the answer is yes.

comment XeLatex otf font won't load
@ajon I am not sure what your issue is. It should not be a problem. I assume you have the right user permissions to read these files. Hint: I noticed you changed your original example. Don't change your original code. It makes it very difficult to identify your problem. You can also add updates, but keep the original code somewhere please.
