My profession is urban planning, one of my hobbies is producing good typography with LaTeX. So far, I've authored two LaTeX packages, idxlayout and quoting.

comment Avoiding “rivers” in successive lines of type
@Jens In the screenshot, there's a continuous line of whitespace from the first to the last line (starting to the right of "measures" and ending to the right of "through").

comment How to change the word “table”/“cuadro” for “tabla” using \cref?
@MikaIke General formatting changes should be done in the preamble. Note that, instead of redefining \tablename and \listtablename in the document body, you should do it in the preamble using \addto\captionsspanish; see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/82993/…

comment Picture goes to the wrong place when doing dvi->pdf
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment How to change the font for biblatex acronyms
@mlt The brute-force method will always result in capitals, even if you switch to a font that features small caps.

comment How to set a global setting for hyphenation of already hyphenated words using XeLaTeX?
@egreg The OP mentions "hopefully to avoid tracking down every hyphenated word in a thesis last-minute scenario". IMO, a preamble-only solution (involving LuaLaTeX which the OP didn't rule out) is at least as appropriate as a solution involving babel shorthands at every instance of the respective words in the document body.

comment How to set a global setting for hyphenation of already hyphenated words using XeLaTeX?
My suggestion does not depend on babel shorthands (or babel). It does, however, provide a global way to set hyphenation of words already containing hyphens, so it seems relevant for your question. If you can't use LuaLaTeX, that would be a valid reason to retract my closing vote; however, your question didn't specify whether LuaLaTeX would be acceptable or not.

@StefanKottwitz Sadly, I won't be able to deliver a German translation of my "Guidelines" before the end of spring. If that's too late for you, I'll return your bounty.
