I could make it work with a few changes. In any case +1 and Merry Xmas :)

I get ! Package tikz Error: Giving up on this path. Did you forget a semicolon?. on line 26 of the first code?

comment Too large line spacing with \tiny in beamer
So par is like `\\` but in addition tells LaTeX that it needs to (re-)compute the line spacing, right?

comment Drawing a box with shading in pgfplots
As the feature request is almost 6 years old, I have little hope this will ever be implemented. Thus thanks a lot for your workaround.

comment Drawing a box with shading in pgfplots
The reason is that I have a shading from white to light gray in the background. I cannot predict what this would look like in print if it's converted from RGB to CMYK, so I'd prefer to use CMYK.

Actually, I just saw there's already a feature request concerning just this (from 2007...): sourceforge.net/p/pgf/feature-requests/29

comment How do I force tikz to use CMYK everywhere (also in shadings)?
I'm surprised this works: As pgfplots is based on tikz why can it do shadings "better" than tikz itself? And as it apparently can do: Can't I just use how pgfplots does the shading directly? (And yes, that would be helpful as I'd need to translate the shadedraw command.)

My follow-up question would be how to use pgfplots to do the background shading in the baposter class.

comment \centering doesn't seem to center my text
I had something like \newcommand{\heading}[1]{{\centering\textbf{#1}}}. "You must end the paragraph before closing the group." was the information I was missing. After adding `\\` it works.

Thanks for your answer, the focus of the question is, however, on "automatically".

comment Automatic way to break narrow tables into two columns?
When compiling your example using latex or pdflatex I get an error: ! This is a LaTeX bug: check coding! ! Command '\seq_set_split:Nnn' not yet defined!

Have you tried it? It doesn't work for me.

comment How to create linearized PDF using TeX?
pdfopt does the job. (In Adobe Reader, under properties it now says, "Fast Web View: Yes", that's all I wanted.)

comment Problem with rotated pages (pdflscape package) and double-sided printing
(Maybe you could modify the code in your answer to \def\myrotate{\ifodd\c@page\else-\fi 90} + \g@addto@macro{\landscape}{\PLS@Rotate{\myrotate}} or similar.)

comment Problem with rotated pages (pdflscape package) and double-sided printing
That's not very convenient, but as the problem seems to be related to specific printer problems, it should do. Thanks!

comment Problem with rotated pages (pdflscape package) and double-sided printing
Yes, this solves the problem. Unfortunately, it seems not to be compatible with longtables. (In long automatically "pagebroken" tables all pages are turned the other way round now.)

comment Problem with rotated pages (pdflscape package) and double-sided printing
I tried this, but I get an error message, Extra \else., when I try to compile with pdflatex. The modified line is \g@addto@macro{\landscape}{\PLS@Rotate{\ifodd\c@page\else-\fi 90}}
