comment Trouble Indenting Portion of document
@cfr Yes, kerning — compare $LHS = \mathit{LHS}$. Or much worse, $diff$ = \mathit{diff}$. (Unless you're using unicode-math, which is unfortunately a bit fuzzy on these points still.)

comment How can I access a specific glyph in LuaLaTeX/Fontspec?
It's worth noting that XeTeXgylph will allow you to access any glyph in the font even if it's not tied to a unicode code point. So it's definitely useful on occasion but also somewhat finicky in practise because the glyph indices will (often/usually) be font-specific.

comment Left and right quotation marks aren't correct when using fontspec
As an aside, in a future version of fontspec I plan to make Ligatures=TeX the default except when using \setmonofont. (Configurable, of course.)

comment Write a command that dynamically calls the argument of another command
@A.Ellett — that's correct. Your idea is an interesting one but unfortunately it's just not how TeX works.

comment Test whether token list is empty
@JDH — expl3 no longer has constructs for toks registers, so this answer doesn't specifically address the original question. I think if you look through expl3.pdf and source3.pdf you should be able to pick up the syntax fairly easily.
