The high degree of automatism is amazing. But typographically I like Marijn's solution best

@Aditya Oops, sorry. It appears it had just popped up from the past and I didn't realize that ...

comment How to draw a rule without knowing its specific width?
Isn't it theoretically a problem in the first style that you switch to sffamily and bfseries after using font properties?

comment Design of new brackets
Hm, can you elaborate what''s "not stable"? The test image I posted actually consisted only of display mode (and it does work in inline mode as well, but there it might be a bit too large overall because it uses at least two strtheights ...)

comment Design of new brackets
IIRC the growable \{\} is produced by gluing together five parts (upper tip, line, middle part, line, lower tip). If one switches the middle part among left and right, this might just be what is desired. But I'm afraid that will leave out a few small sizes where the braces are not glued from parts ...

I'd guess that \doubledecker p b looks problematic (didn't test it)

comment Is it possible in Latex to convert all numbers between imperial and metric?
The precision problem @egreg mentions exists also in an even worse form: IIRC, there was once a book titled "How to make a million dollars out of nothing" or the like, and someone translated that to another language and currency - using a currency conversion ratio with five digit precision! :)

comment How to display sine squared more compactly
That raises the question, what to do if \left... \right is needed for a complicated argument? If we are lucky, it is a fraction and again paraentheses can be dropped.

comment Blur the whole document and add a demo watermark on each page
After contemplating this, maybe something totally different could be adequate (but I have no idea how to accomplish this): Replace all text in the output - except the part that shall remain readable - with blind text ("lorem ipsum") in such a manner that tha paragraph shape is not affected; a good implementation of such a method might also use "blind math" for display formulas and "blind images" for illustrations ...

comment How to add random lines over text as a watermark and anti-OCR?
Keep in mind: The better OCR development, the less human-readable is any anti-OCR text (I myself sometimes fail todays captchas!). For any text of nontrivial length, human reading becomes intolerably strenuous (not to mention the visually impaired)
