comment hyphenation with languages in transliteration // forced hyphenation?
Since you are using luatex, I presume you can define a function to insert discretionaries with the help of some regexps. Also, with luatex it should be possible to create a new language with their corresponding patterns. Sorry for not being more specific - I think in a couple of week I could work those ideas out.

comment How can I retrieve (and conditionally act on) the language of my document?
In babel, this macro is named \bbl@main@language.

comment Customize KOMA section headings without titlesec
Yes, I am. I'd say just they are not compatible. Another possibility is «KOMA doesn't take account for all the features and special stuff by titleps» ;-).

comment Customize KOMA section headings without titlesec
No, no, “packages like titlesec or titleps which are meant as enhancement to the generic standard classes” is not exact. They might not work with some classes, indeed, but that doesn't mean these packages should be reserved only for the standard classes.

comment Error when writing the chapter number fifteen of the appendices (the letter ñ in the Spanish alphabet), when using the babel package spanish
Report received. Actually it's just a typo -- \if& should read \ifx& (no expansion intended here). But anyway using & as delimiter is not a good idea (very likely in this context it won't hurt, but it should be changed for something better).

comment problems finding correct language.dat
You should also upgrade to a recent version of babel. The message shown was changed long ago, so an old version is being used. That won't fix your issue, I think, but there are lots of bug fixes.

@PauloMendes. Are you sure? \bbl@ifshorthand didn't exist until 2012.

\setlanguage is not a babel command. Please, provide a MWE.

comment How to change between languages without using a command?
That only solves glyphs/characters, but typographical rules, including hyphenation, cannot be switched automatically in general (not only TeX, so "in general" means exactly that). By the way, for a Greek, the foreign language is English :-).

I presume what you need is to install a recent version of babel.

Actually, KeepShorthandsActive has been there for ages.

comment What is the kvoptions-patch's equivalent of \@classoptionslist?
It seems kvoptions-patch redefines \ProcessOptions to use \XK..@classoptionslist instead of \@classoptionslist. However, the LaTeX option mechanism doesn't recognize a global option if it's not explicitly declared in the package, so babel traverses \@classoptionslist to define them if necessary. Just wondering if just defining both macros will be enough.

comment Error using \ref in captions with Tufte and Babel
I'm investigating, but if you don't use shorthands in \ref you can use the package option safe=bib or safe=none.
