comment Can one define an expandable command that removes control sequences from its argument?
@Yossi Actually, that's not so hard to fix. The relevant code is in SanitizeTokens, specifically, the \if statement. This only catches control sequences, because it compares to \relax. For active characters, you should put a second check in the \else branch, say, \ifnum\catcode#1=13 %. I haven't tested this, but I think you're capable of making it work if you want to.

@yossi what do you mean by special characters? Also, this will likely not get fixed by me :-)

@egreg Good point. I was a bit of a hotshot when I wrote this answer.

@egreg true. Though I've never used that, to the point that I didn't know there was one.
