comment When is it appropriate to use \outer?
@PeterGerdes you are missing that making a macro \outer only makes it slightly more complicated to put it into a definition. It is often not possible to predict what programmers of packages relying on your package will need. For instance, look up the reason why LaTeX2e decided not to make \newcount etc \outer, contrarily to the earlier plain TeX format.

comment Feed fontdimen parameters to TeX
@MartinSchröder Of course, but users are still using pdfTeX for good reasons (stability) and less good reasons (habit), or XeTeX for fonts.

comment Why does my Latex want multiple \end(document)s?
Start by fixing the Bad math, Missing $, Missing }, and Misplaced alignment tab errors. They cause TeX to insert various things in your file to try and survive. I expect that your issue with \end{document} will disappear. Also, make a copy of your project, and start removing stuff from it to make a small file/set of files showing the error. This is always possible.

comment Feed fontdimen parameters to TeX
@JosephWright Providing access to Unicode Character Properties in a cheap way, for use in regexps, for the collation algorithm, to get the correct choice of medial/final sigma when lowercasing, etc. Basically, \fontdimen <char-num>\unidatafont gives a 25 bit integer (maximum providable through a tfm), where I can hopefully compress all Character Properties of that character.

comment Customizing names of auxiliary file: safe practices?
At the end of the day, since I do not need the file to keep information between runs, I decided only use the file if it is empty, and empty it every time I am done using it.

Back in the olden days I would vote to close this question as too localized, but the option seems to have disappeared. In any case, please feel free to close it.
