comment A letter in the same space as another
Very good. Question: Shouldn't the command be used as \mathmakeboxlargestof{y}{\alert{z}}{y} and \mathmakeboxlargestof{y}{\alert{z}}{\alert{z}} respectively? Just in case the alert is making some space.

comment Package for changing font with each letter?
For effect, in a poster. Not for a whole long text, that's for sure. It would be painful to read a whole page written like that.

Very good answer. One question, why is it that you have to apply phantom to the whole thing and then have to overlap instead of phantom only the exponent?

@Caramir: As I said, typesetting is content dependent. The goal is to convey meaning without distraction. \frac{1}{1-z} is just perfect. But the nature of what we are writing now is different from the formula for the geometric progression.

Oh my! Now I understand. I never put in the question that what I'm writing is many sums of geometric progressions. My bad.
