comment Expl variable assignments not behaving as I expect
@A.Ellett I don't feel slighted, all is good, I asked out of curiosity! Joseph, Sorry to clutter your question, I probably should have asked on chat or somewhere, but thanks for indulging me.

The asker seems convinced that my answer is incorrect, if that's the case (aside from using the word string when I maybe shouldn't have etc.) I wouldn't mind knowing what I've misunderstood!

Again, I'm not sure the issue is because -NoValue- is becoming stringified...it's because \controlsequence isn't being replaced by it's contents. I have a fix for you.

Why not use \NewDocumentCommand{\makeversions}{ sO{;}mm }?

n type arguments (for the most part) are passed as is, there's no expansion or replacement. So you're asking whether the sting \controlsequence is equal to -NoValue-. Can you use an optional with default value ;?

Fair enough, I could be wrong. How do you interpret \cs_new_eq:NN \IfNoValueT \__xparse_if_no_value:nT?

In that case add \cs_generate_variant:Nn \seq_set_split:Nnn {NVV} and use that in your set split with just the macro names, no braces (which works for me).

Your IfNoValue code isn't executing. Probably (maybe), that code is written to taken an n type argument and can't deal with being passed a macro.

Oops, just saw that the answers in the question I linked were all TiKz, which you said you used...my bad. Good that Torbjorn had you covered.

comment Lemma numbering by first instance of referencing
Hmm, it seems tricky (i.e. beyond me) to do what you want, but maybe it's easier than I think. The wizards may be able to help. Good luck!

comment Lemma numbering by first instance of referencing
Have you thought of giving the statements of the Lemmas in the body of the document, and deferring the proofs to an appendix? That way you get the numbering that you like, and the reader has easy access to the statements rather than having to find them in an appendix. (this may be the same suggestion that vonbrand made) What sort of document is it?
