Hi Philip,

For example developing some complex behavior allowing for non-standard 
commands (e.g. parsing wiki markup as in wiki.sty) or performing 
advanced computations (e.g. the amazing math work by the PGF+Tikz crew, 
pstricks, etc.)

I know there has been a LOT done in these and other scenarios, but I was 
never sure whether it is tailored to reuse for different purposes (it's 
not only graphics packages that require computation, etc.)

But I like Uwe's suggestion to look into LaTeX 3, that sounds generic 
enough to be the kind of hammer I need for my nail.
