comment Alternatives to \sideset and \nolimits?
@David: This site doesn't have math-tex, since most of the time we're discussing the TeX itself, not the math. I took the liberty of embedding the desired image in your question.

comment Why is the ifthen package obsolete?
@Konrad: When aren't they the same? I'd be happy to switch away from ifthen, but that's the one feature of it I use most of the time.

comment Listings alternative
While I like minted (its output is also significantly nicer), it's worth noting that it does slow down compilation noticeably.

comment Alternate he / she in text
I fully support the use of singular they instead. It avoids the problems with the gendered words; it's used in actual speech; it's the clearest option; and it's attested as far back as 1300, having been used by such notable authors as Chaucer and Shakespeare. Prescriptivism can go hang :-)

comment What's a good package for typesetting quantum circuits?
The circuitikz package is for drawing electrical circuits; quantum circuits are almost completely different. It might be adaptable, but then you probably might as well be using plain TikZ.

comment Fix for amsart.cls tableofcontents bug regarding starred sections?
Welcome to TeX.SX! A tip: to format inline code, surround it with backticks (`...code...`); and to format code blocks, prepend four spaces to each line. Alternatively, the 101010 button will do what you want.
