I'm a condensed matter physicist who, despite a decade's experience with LaTeX, still has an awful lot of TeXnical details to learn.

And you don't like the answer "Yes, but you should use polyglossia instead of babel"?

comment Tab not as extra alignment tab
@egreg: yep, that'd explain it. Thanks. Now for bonus points, why don't I need to explicitly restore the catcode?

comment Tab not as extra alignment tab
@Andrey: yes, I saw that I didn't need to but I don't fully understand why: after all, I change the catcode /before/ beginning the group. And changing the catcode /inside/ the group doesn't work! (If this is too complicated to explain in a comment feel free to say so and I can ask it as a new question...)

comment Is it possible to customize only the section and subsection numbers or titles in memoir?
True! I guess the best thing to do in that case is explicitly save the old secnumformat and restore it afterwards. I'll edit to suggest this.

comment Table: Can I shift a column by half the height of a row?
(+1) Snap! And thanks for showing how to use \normalbaselineskip -- I was sure there was a command like that but couldn't remember what it was...
