comment How can I express \begin{minipage}{\linewidth-2ex}?
@egreg: I didn't know about the calc package. This answers the question (hint). (Note: I did mean 2ex since it is determined by a different vertical margin.)

Great answer. Thank you! I suppose there is no way to do this without redefining the entire command, right?

added the tweak that is necessary to get the correct output (this answer essentially answered the question, so I would like to accept it instead of posting my own answer)

comment Can the acronym package be told to use a certain style?
Coincidentally, I just found this, too. However, I cannot get the long form to be set in italics, but not the part in parentheses: That is, I want "long form: (short)" instead of "long form (short)" but \acffont seems to encompass the entire thing.

comment How to add different Q.E.D. symbols to different theorems?
I am talking about the general use of the package. For example with exactly the code as you provide it (just with the qed parameter passed to delcaretheoremstyle instead of declaretheorem as per documentation [the latter doesn't have the qed parameter]). I understand that it works for you, but I am unable to determine what the error could mean. Maybe it's my not so up-to-date latex sources plus the newest version of thmtools. Actually, I don't even have to declar any theorem whatsoever, I just have to include the package.

comment How to add different Q.E.D. symbols to different theorems?
I'm still unable to get this to work. I downloaded the newest thmtools package as my version didn't have declaretheoremstyle (which you have to use for qed to work`) but whenever I use that I get an Undefined control sequence. <recently read> \NR@gettitle which tells me absolutely nothing. Any idea what's going on?

comment How to add different Q.E.D. symbols to different theorems?
@tohecz: Yes, but I did not invent this. I have always searched for a way to distinctively mark the end of a theorem or a definition to make clear where the theorem/definition ends and regular text continues. I saw this a couple times in literature and think a black square works well as full-stop-like indicator that now follows regular text. As far as I am concerned a Q.E.D. symbol is a hollow square (\square).
