comment What is the proper way to implement language options in a multilanguage package?
Adding main=finnish works, but it generates the warning Unused global option(s): [main=finnish]

comment What is the proper way to implement language options in a multilanguage package?
What puzzles me even more is that when I load babel with the option finnish as \RequirePackage[finnish]{babel} in the above package with \PassOptionsToPackage` active, Finnish isn't activated. Why is this so?

Shouldn't a global option, finnish here, be passed to to babel loaded by mypackage regardless of whether it is an option of mypackage?

comment Using TikZ, how do I draw a box having an adjustable width?
Thanks, this is a very useful tip. I see that tikz/pgf is very powerful and flexible, to say the least.

I've done this as well using PSTricks, but I wanted to do this now specifically using tikz. You can do it also by saying \settowidth{\myboxwidth}{some} \fbox{\parbox{\myboxwidth}{some text}}.

The align=center is even better as now I don't have to evaluate the text width. Brilliant.

This work just as I want it to. But why is it that \pgfmathwidth cannot be used directly but has to be passed on to \myboxwidth?
