I'm a mathematician working in algebra. I've been using TeX since 1987, but couldn't write my Ph.D. thesis with it. Sob!

I teach LaTeX at my university, besides the mathematics courses. I'm the author of some LaTeX packages and even of one Plain TeX package. At my site it's possible to download my book on LaTeX programming (in Italian, sorry).

Here's my motto for TeX.SX:

Pronto prontissimo son come il fulmine: sono il factotum della città. (From "Il barbiere di Siviglia", music by Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini.)

comment Token replacement within a group
regexpatch offers \xpatchcmd* for that precise purpose. But since it's based on l3regex, it's simpler using it directly.

comment Really lots of multiple indices with imakeidx - ind files not being created
You have to run manually splitindex and makeindex, due to the nonewpage option. But the option is not necessary, since you're using a book class where the indices make chapters.

comment How to define a private color in a (possibly LaTeX3) package?
@jfbu Sure, but hitting the same name without peeking at the code is not likely, if combined with your suggestion of a long and not easily predictable name.

@DenisBitouzé The same: \char_set_catcode_other:N \^^@ and then \char_set_catcode_ignore:N \^^@ for reverting.

As soon as one has access to the code, the secret will be revealed.

comment \ProcessKeyvaloptions{Hyp} can anyone help me with this problem?
Welcome to TeX.SX! I tried removing the blank lines that seemed there for showing line breaks (you can instead select the code and click the {} button on the top of the editing box). If your code is as in my edit, then a problem are the blank lines in the argument to \hypersetup. If not, please edit the code to be the same as yours.

You shouldn't use a scratch register such as \box0 for non temporary purposes.

Particularly important is showing what language(s) you're loading with babel. Have you tried adding \usetikzlibrary{babel}? Spanish, I guess.
