comment Fixed font size and document background alpha channel
If you want all formulas to have the same font size, then obviously there has to be a longest equation which can be displayed (unless it is possible to scroll horizontally). The width of this longest equation is the fixed paper width you have to select. Of course, if the font size is to be the same for all equations, then all shorter equations will have some white space to the sides.

comment Fixed font size and document background alpha channel
I think the font size is the same, only the size of the resulting PDF is different. If you use a fixed page width, the apparent font size will be the same.

comment How to include SVG diagrams in LaTeX?
If you were referring to tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/svg-inkscape I don't think it is an addition to Andrew's answer because it is based on exporting PDF+LaTeX while Andrew is talking about this: wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/… Would you care to elaborate?

@Ruben Could you extend your comment into an answer?

comment Bibliography : subdividing into sections
I don't think this answers the question as I think the OP was asking about dividing references by their type (say, separate sections for books about math and physics), not by the chapters of the document. Please change your answer accordingly.

comment A conditional independence symbol that looks good with \mid?
\text uses \mathchoice internally, so by adding \typeout{::bigCI::}% inside \text{ I get 20 occurrences of ::bigCI:: for the five symbols in your example. You can do the math (based on a estimation of how often the symbol will occur in your documents :-)

Note that by using symbols with such a complicated definition a lot, you can make your document run really slow... Maybe it would be a good idea to cache them in a box or something.

Note that the question explicitly asks for inclusion without conversion to an intermediate format.

comment pdfcomment with reserved characters
You need to indent code by 4 spaces. Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you.

comment Adding empty lines for readability
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please check the question again. I think it is about inserting space in the source code of the document which does not go into the printout.

comment Installing the mcq TeX package
If it ends with .py, it's probably a python file. Maybe ./mcq.py or python mcq.py?
