comment Why can't we use a \define'd value as a parameter to \switchtobodyfont[…]?
Can you point me to a reference for the \protected primitive? I don't see it at tug.org/utilities/plain/cseq.html#p-ai

Thanks, this is very helpful. Can you give an example of when lack of expansion is the right thing to do? I think that will help me understand the contrast with \switchtobodyfont[...], which requires the content to be expanded.

@phg: ok. I've been reading that wiki page section (which sounds like the title of a Charles Willams novel), but the quirk described there, namely the limitation that only integer sizes are reliable, doesn't seem to apply to this case. I don't understand how to tell that \switchtobodyfont needs to expand content and something else doesn't. But maybe I just need to avoid \define.

Sorry, my mistake.

Thank you for this helpful answer. Point of clarification: when you say "mkiv-style arguments", does that mean named arguments, like #optional in your example? Do you have a reference for where I can read more about those?

OK, those folders may be specific to LuaLaTeX. See comment discussion with Ulrike.

@UlrikeFischer: Thanks for your response. Running luaotfload-tool on the command line gives me "command not found". I guess that's because I only have the ConTeXt scheme installed, not LaTeX. I just looked for names.tma, and found one under ~/.texlive2013. Will let you know how that goes!

@UlrikeFischer: I compiled a ConTeXt LuaTeX document that attempts to access fonts (using the Simplefonts module). Does that qualify? Can I just run luaotfload-tool -u by hand? I tried, but can't find such a file...

@UlrikeFischer: Thanks, but I don't see that file either, neither on Windows nor on Linux.

In TeX Live 2013, I can't find a file otfl-names.lua, in Windows or Linux. The luatex-cache folder contains context, and nothing else. Maybe that file only exists for LuaLaTeX?
