comment Can a \newcommand Definition Contain Braces as Substitution Text?
Does the second option I mentioned above work for you in that case? Actually, just \begingroup might be easier..

comment Can a \newcommand Definition Contain Braces as Substitution Text?
It would help to know what you need it for. If you just want the symbol, then you could use \newcommand{\openbrace}{\{}. If you want to start a group you could use \newcommand{\openbrace}{\begingroup}

comment Vertical spaces above and below longtabu
@Qrrbrbirlbel That's a good suggestion, I didn't consider that the center environment might have something to do with it. Would you like to add an answer or should I update mine to include that option?

comment Vertical spaces above and below longtabu
No problem! Unfortunately, I don't know what specifically it is about longtabu/longtable that causes the extra spacing. I assume that it is a consequence of the ability to split a table across pages. The -17pt was simply from guess and check...I tried -15pt and it wasn't enough while -20pt was too much. I'm not sure if it's exact, but it looked close enough to me.
