comment How to diagnose a permanent “Label(s) may have changed” warning?
Thanks to this diagnostic trick, I was finally able to fix the issue. It turns out, the captions of all offending labels had inline math with a _ (subscript) inside (though the before/after versions were always identical). Replacing these was all I had to do! --- I am unable to reproduce this in a minimal document. Can't say I'm surprised. I hacked around in my thesis code so much, it's hardly LaTeX anymore. --- Thanks!

@Andrew: Worth a try, thanks. :-) I had to put this problem on the back burner for a while, but it's time I did something about it.

@Tobi: Very useful, thanks! No, in fact, very few rules have been implemented so far. The package is still somewhat immature, and advice like this is exactly the kind of thing it needs. Cheers!

comment XeLaTeX problem with a vector arrow
\overrightarrow creates a \vbox: a rectangle which, by default, does not overlap with other boxes. Such boxes can have visible content anywhere inside (or even outside) their bounds, so making them overlap will often be the wrong thing to do. Unfortunately, (La)TeX cannot take every possible situation into account. That's why there are ways to make manual corrections.

@Adam: How strange; it should. Try multiple \! in a row, e.g. $\overrightarrow{V}_{\!\!\!\!AB}$ just to see if it makes a difference. If not, please put your full LaTeX code in your original question.

comment A package for package-loading management?
Hi Sean, I just published a package for this very purpose. There's a link to the pkgloader Github page in the question linked to by lockstep. There's still a lot to do. Please try it out, play around with it. Any suggestions would be welcome.

comment Automated management of package options and loading order
To those who voted to put the question on hold: I removed the one question that could be seen as too broad: "Any other feedback?" The other (related) questions would seem to be quite specific. --- (PS: The package is almost ready to go on CTAN.)
