comment How to get “XeLaTeX + unicode-math” output as close as possible to that of pdflatex?
@tohecz: Oh, please. Don't worry about that. You're just trying to clean the place up. :-)

comment How to get “XeLaTeX + unicode-math” output as close as possible to that of pdflatex?
@tohecz: Truth be told, I don't personally need an answer to this one any longer. But I do find the decision to close/put-on-hold an illogical one. Plus, the question may yet be useful to others. So for the sake of tex.se (and to oppose illogic) I will open that discussion on meta. Though forgive me if I let it wait until tomorrow (yawn). --- All the best,

@tohecz: Why is "No." not a legitimate answer here? Anyway, I asked the question to solve a real problem I faced at the time, and it literally follows all the rules listed in the 'Asking' section of the help center (I checked). It is not subjective. Moreover, it addresses an issue that people may yet face in the future. If you are hung up on the word "answerable" in the 'what to avoid asking' section, I find that a bit weak. The most you could say is that this question does not have an answer yet.

comment How to get “XeLaTeX + unicode-math” output as close as possible to that of pdflatex?
@tohecz: I'm sorry, but is there any way in which this is not silly? [1] The question is obviously about LaTeX and follows the rules, so: on topic. [2] A reasonable answer to "Is there a way to do this?" might be "No.". [3] How does the inability to answer a question make that question off-topic anyway? --- I can understand the impulse to close what appears to be a dead-end question, but please find a better justification.

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.

comment Automated management of package options and loading order
@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!
