comment pdflscape and tikzpagenodes problem
Your new landscape definition will throw an error if you have \includegraphics[height=\textheight]{whatever.png} within a landscape environment. Something like ! Output loop---100 consecutive dead cycles. While \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{whatever.png} will continue to work. Perhaps there is a way to correct this. Note it seems parameter height is the culprit here-being disabled.

comment What is the basic mechanism for writing something to an aux file?
Nevermind. Now I understand the purpose of \immediate. It ensures that the file is written to immediately (before the first \input) instead of at page shipout. So for future readers, just add \immediate before \openout (to create the file handle immediately) and in this case before at least one \write to make sure you write immediately (before the first \input call). Otherwise, the list won't have any \item and complain about that. \closeout does not need it. The handle will just get closed at shipout.

Concerning your "TeX primitives" example, did you forget a step? I am getting ! LaTeX Error: File writetofile.comment' not found.` (file is called writetofile.tex)

I am getting some strange artifacts on the right and left of the title box (with closer inspection, I see them on your output as well). They are small brighter red lines. Do you see them? Do you know why they are there and how I can eliminate them? The box is also slightly higher (which is usually a depth problem solved with a strut, but both "Hint" and "Note" have the same depth.).

It should not affect the result, however. I prefer it unless you can provide a good argument against it.

comment Example environment?
@Shredderroy I am not sure, but I can tell you that I have since switched to tcolorbox, because I found mdframed not able to properly handle multipage spanning. Also, I know TikZ, so tcolorbox was a logical alternative and not a difficult jump to make. I updated my answer. Maybe this alternative will work for you.

comment How can I use hyperref hyperlinks inside of description list keys?
Wow thanks for the hasty answer. I don't suppose there is a way to do this without any extra dependencies hmm? (e.g. letltxmacro) (btw I think I have etoolbox as a dependency already).
