comment Changing “-” to \textendash
@Will: I'm not sure if I understand. I thought Tomas also wanted the replacement in, e.g., "well-known" (@Tomas: Is that correct?). There you wouldn't find an en-dash legitimate, would you? As an alternative for the em-dash I like it, too, but there I'd really rather recommend using -- in the source.

comment Changing “-” to \textendash
@Tomas: I just meant that changing to \endash might not be a great improvement. I could even be better to take the CM hyphen instead.

comment Changing “-” to \textendash
@Harald: Yes, I did, and to my surprise it worked. (As a principle, I try to test everything before I post it.)

comment Changing “-” to \textendash
I don't really think that \endash is adequate here; see this post.

comment How to delete a locally installed version of pgf?
This is just a wild guess, but it might be that we have some serious misunderstanding here. My above comment was meant on the funny side (forgot to put some :-)). It was not meant as a critique to you answer, nor did I downvote the answer. If you have no idea why I put this new comment here, then maybe my wild guess was incorrect. If you have an idea, then I would be very grateful for a confirmation that my guess was correct. @Anybody else who has no idea what this is about: Sorry; I hope that I'm not abusing the comment function too heavily here.

comment Defining a new environment whose contents go in a TikZ node
+1, nice explanations. I'm not so sure about the trick with \iffalse: It looks useful, but is there any instance where you can use this trick, and \bgroup + \egroup doesn't work? (For \def it doesn't seem to help!)

comment Nicer way to test that exactly one flag is set
@Tomas: So then you rather want to make sure, and I'd agree with Willie that you'd better use a key. Is there a particular reason why you don't want to do that?

comment Nicer way to test that exactly one flag is set
I'm not sure what you're trying to do with your \OneTrue macro. Do you want to test if at least one of the booleans is true? That's not what the OP wants.

comment LaTeX equivalent of ConTeXt buffers
@Antal: One should add that \scantokens is an e-TeX primitive (that I'd never heard of until now).

comment Defining a new environment whose contents go in a TikZ node
+1 for pointing out the environ package; extremely useful also for other things (shameless plug). @Stefan, only one thing: \NewEnviron takes only 2 mandatory arguments (and one optional argument behind those); it won't see the pair of braces {}.
