I am a mathematician by profession and quite a long-time (since around 1995 – as of now [2014], this means more than half of my life) TeX user by hobby.

I started with plain TeX, and much later (in the early 2000s) moved to LaTeX; I still use plain TeX occasionally (and when writing LaTeX classes/packages). Quite recently I also started to use ConTeXt.

I am a heavy Emacs user, though still a newbie – I started in 2001.

I have a blog about (among others) TeX and friends, located at http://mbork.pl/Content_AND_Presentation.

comment Is there a package (like showlabels) for amsrefs?
I'll try, though that might be tough - my example is a not-so-small document with a custom class...

Well, my fault - I mixed the names of showlabels and showkeys... Thanks!

Indeed, there were some spacing changes. Thanks anyway!

One question: why define \s@dH?

This. Is. Pure. Awesome. (Though an extremely dirty trick.) The only reason I didn't accept this (yet?) is that I want to wait for more answers (though it seems unlikely that they'll come...) May I submit this to the "TeX beauties and oddities" session for the next BachoTeX conference (with due credit, of course?)

Agreed (I more or less stated it in the question anyway), but my curiosity is still unsatisfied...

Better yet: \usepackage{etoolbox}\appto{\proof}{\unskip}

No, better change it as you've written!

comment A problem with `amsthm` and positive `\parskip`
BTW, I'm looking now at the definition of the proof environment, and I'm wondering why that skip appears... If I had more time (and my TeXbook copy at home;)), I could investigate this. Maybe tomorrow...

comment A problem with `amsthm` and positive `\parskip`
Great, thanks! So it was proof which introduced the unnecessary skip. Stupid me, I should have tried something like this...

Not at all, unfortunately. This is supposed to be coded in a class released in the wild, for people to use. No manual hacks like this allowed...
