comment How to process only tokens containing a lower case letter?
@Joseph only lower case letters matter, everything else can be passed through, no expansion. AöT\hello{\hello} contains one small letter thus A\texttt{ö}T\hello{\hello} is the desired result. EghF\texttt{s}D contains three but the third is hidden in the group token, so the desired result is E\texttt{g}\texttt{h}F\texttt{s}D. Just processing the first level, no expansion.

comment How to process only tokens containing a lower case letter?
I was activley avoiding a regex solution. It always reminds me of the famous quote: Some people, when confronted with a problem, think “I know, I'll use regular expressions.” Now they have two problems. From a computer science point of view: looping over a linear list, inspecting each element and performing an operation on it, is such a simple task that using regex feels like overkill. But thanks I will look into it.

@egreg, lualatex and utf-8, the last call has one token, that is not a letter only on command sequence, it should go through untouched.

comment Do pdfTeX, XeTeX and LuaTeX share any code with Knuth's original TeX?
What 'original TeX' refers to needs to be clarified as well. The first TeX was written in SAIL to run on a PDP-10 under the WAITS OS.

@egreg The MWE uses the noautomatic option and I did run xindy manually, however the result is as described.

comment Turn off AUCTeX's changing double quotes to single quotes
Do you use Unicode for your documents? Then the ASCII 022 Quotation Mark " is just one of many options you have. See here. Then how to enter Unicode characters with Emacs is worth a look. Regardless of the encoding the packages csquotes might also be worth a look.

comment automatic size adjustment for nested parentheses
@l-spice Your question is not foolish, indeed there is a '\left \right'-pair missing.
