comment Delimited arguments and using a macro inside of itself
Nice, thank you! :-). I guess one needs a \newcount\tmpnum to go with it.

comment Delimited arguments and using a macro inside of itself
@Joseph: Thanks, but the L3 syntax is a bit too alien for me to follow. I'll just take your word for it being hard and tedious. :)

comment Delimited arguments and using a macro inside of itself
I'm having a hard time understanding this. I mean, I understand what the issue is, but I don't understand how to sidestep it. Any way I could make it “accidentally work” with the \args without explicitly bracing the arguments when using the macro? :)

Well how come it works with the \foo then?

So the outer one is expanded before the inner one? That's... gross.

comment Writing Roman numbers in Equation
Perhaps even \eqno\hbox{\tenrm IV} to ensure that a) the number is from the text font, and b) doesn't inherit the style of the surrounding text.

comment Redefine \middle| to insert space before and after itself
@Manuel, David: Oooh! I didn't know that! Thanks!

comment Redefine \middle| to insert space before and after itself
I mean, if I wouldn't have \left...\right, but instead \bigl...\bigr, then \middle wouldn't work; but as the | is also defined as a delimiter, one can do \big|, but that isn't a class relation symbol then. I was wondering if that could be made a relation.

comment Redefine \middle| to insert space before and after itself
Just out of curiosity, do you know how would one do that with a \(U)delcode or \(U)delimiter? (i.e., without \middle?)

Maybe you just want \mid? Though, that won't scale vertically.

comment OpenType MPlib labels with luatex-plain
@Thruston: I think luamplib is included via the luatex-plain format. I don't have very much disk space, so I'd rather not install 2.3Gb of stuff I won't be doing anything with.

comment Prevent too many hyphens in a row
There is a parameter \doublehyphendemerits for not three, but two consecutive hyphenated lines. Demerits are badness squared; the default, at least in plain, is 10 000.
