comment How to create polygon feature class from UTM coordinates?
I think what PolyGeo meant for that line is lineArray.add(lineArray.getObject(0)). This is in order to properly close the polygon by fetching the 1st point added and loading it again as the last in the sequence of the point obj array.

comment Getting the outer boundary of a group of polygons
If you have the Advanced license and the 'holes' are all interior in your 1st dissolve result, then you can finish the task with Eliminate Polygon Part, because a hole is considered a part. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…

comment How to set a minimum point snap distance?
Ah, then this greatly simplifies the problem, good question klewis. Aaron, I'm assuming you mean anywhere actually on the red buffer boundary line itself i.e. 5 meters exactly as originally stated, not 'within'.

comment How to develop a Toolbox intended to be distributed in multiple version of ArcGIS?
That's right - somehow you have to provide that logic. You could pretty much target which functions to import based on the installed version at the beginning of your main program. It wouldn't be efficient to keep querying the install...do it at the beginning and be done with it. If you later discover a better version-dependent functionality you didn't know about before, wrap that into your imports, etc etc.

comment How to develop a Toolbox intended to be distributed in multiple version of ArcGIS?
Yes of course, there is a lot more to take advantage of in the later versions of arcpy -- the da (data access) cursor was a major advance; another is better access to geometry methods. The point is that if you want to access a better or faster method, you have to know which version you're operating from so that you'll know which methods are available. I use the statement arcpy.GetInstallInfo()['Version'].split)('.')[1] to return '0', '1', or '2' depending which machine I've launched from i.e., the one with 10.0, or 10.1, or 10.2.x installed and use branching logic accordingly.
