comment Is there a “contradiction” symbol in some font, somewhere?
or draw it yourself for maximum control: \usepackage{tikz} and then \def\contra{\tikz[baseline, x=1ex, y=.7em, line width=.7pt]\draw (0,0) -- (1,1) (0,1) -- (1,0) (.5,0) -- (1.5,1) (0.5,1) -- (1.5,0);}

comment Creating a ConTeXt/LaTeX hybrid module
That seems to be a very standard-compliant way of doing it, but it means that I have to develop an install script that puts the files into the user’s texmf tree, instead of simply telling them to drop a single .tex file next to their document in order to install it. But then, I could as well just let the script generate the appropriate file: ./make_titlepage.py latex. A “drop-in” module would be best.

TikZ is awesome, but this makes me kind of angry. Why wouldn’t someone accept patches?

comment CMYK ConTeXt colors in TikZ
Wow, that’s the answer I was looking for. Tear this stubborn module’s heart out, overcharge it and stuff it back in! Any chance to get this into the core? Also, I need the ability to upvote more than once. PS: I just clarified the question, I did not alter it. I meant to ask this from the start, just firgured I’d have to add more specificity.

comment CMYK ConTeXt colors in TikZ
See my edited answer on what works already and thus tells me that there must be a way to create hybrid ConTeXt/TikZ colors. I don’t need them to be CMYK internally, just defined via CMYK. Also: Isn’t \unprotect \dosomethingwith@inside \protect the canonical way?
