comment Error: paragraph ended before … was complete
I see my error. I forgot about the argument I gave to \aermb when I wrote \@@@ae@rmb.

comment Error: paragraph ended before … was complete
@egreg That really confuses me. I'm sure I've made plenty of macros and used them at the end of a paragraph without such problems. Why is the paragraph occurring after the macro call effecting the expansion of the macro's argument, which doesn't contain any new paragraph.

comment Error: paragraph ended before … was complete
@egreg when I add \long before \def\@@@ae@rmb.... I get a new error about missing $ even though the macro is supposed to insert them. Why is that?

comment How can I write a command that defines another macro which may optionally be prefixed by \global?
This is more of an aesthetic question: Would it be better to create a starred version of the command or to call \aesavesumas\mysum{2}{3} and then immediately \xdef\mysum{\mysum} or some other explicit global assignment?

comment How to move a set of nodes without modifying each coordinates?
It seems to me that if you move all the nodes, then the visual effect will be nullified. It might help if you could give us an example which illustrates how this will result in a different appearance. Or, could you compare this something that you would do in pstricks so we could better understand what you're asking for (such as perhaps \pstTranslation{A}{B}{M1,M2,...,Mn}[M1',M2',...,Mn']

@petergrill beat you to the punch so to speak. Still +1.

And if I wanted to position those labels closer to the axes, would you have any suggestions?

comment Asking spreadtab to add all rows above?
Some kind of a minimum working example would be nice. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by the number of rows having to be specified? (Or do you mean columns?)

comment Why is my /.is choice key not working correctly?
OK, I think I just answered my own question. I tried \def\@@ae@fill{blue,line width=8pt} and I got an error about I do not know the key '/tikz/blue,line width=8pt'. So, if I understand correctly, the order of expansion matters because the key parser grabs \@@ae@fill as the entirety of the key and only then does it proceed to expand it.

comment Why is my /.is choice key not working correctly?
Could you elaborate a bit about why this is the way it is? In particular, why is it that upon expansion of \fill[\@@ae@fill] that my fill=blue is read as one entire key, but \expandafter\fill\expandafter[\@@ae@fill] corrects this misreading? Put another way, why is it that the order of expansion effects how the keys are seen?
