I have collected experience with TeX for quite some time and I am familiar with TeX programming. I have written pgfplots and several contributions to pgf/TikZ.

comment Pgfplots externalizing figures: (inconsistent) white borders
Perhaps xticklabel style={overlay} helps (but check whether this will clip it away). It might also help to use \begin{tikzpicture}[trim axis right] as described in section "Alignment" in the pgfplots manual.

comment pgfplots cannot read file
What happens if you modify the file extension? Perhaps the TeX distribution on Macs appends .tex or some other stupidity... ?

comment How is TikZ meant to be pronounced? “tiks”, “tikz” or “tik-zee”?
The answer is consistent with the TikZ reference manual: section "Part III TikZ ist kein Zeichenprogramm" states that 'TikZ means "TikZ ist kein Zeichenprogramm."' --- this is just to provide the reference

comment Is it possible to expect pst-solides3d (in the future) to generate gradient mesh?
This is impossible by means of pgfplots. You may consider using mesh/interior colormap which allows to choose a different colormap for the "other side" of the patches

comment Is it possible to expect pst-solides3d (in the future) to generate gradient mesh?
Sure. In this case, the simplest case would be some math expression using point meta=<expression>. The actual colors can be configured using colormap (details in the manual pgfplots.sourceforge.net)

comment How to draw 3d vector field on a line?
pgfplots supports a quiver plot handler as well. It uses TikZ instructs to draw the lines, so one would need to find a tikz way for the advanced arrows. Or you can use a loop together with tikz drawing instructions (same approach as the one of @troy.

comment How to group box plots in pgf / tikz?
Try playing around with boxplot prepared={draw position={<axis unit to place box>}, ...}. This determines where the box is placed in terms of axis units. It is somewhat manual work, but it should do the job. Is that what you need?

comment Invoke gnuplot through pgfplots to get a matrixplot
I'm glad that proves to be useful. I won't have time to look into it for the next days; but just as much right now: \addplot gnuplot just uses data files. Gnuplot visualizations like PM3D are not imported into pgfplots (I don't know if it has any effect in this context).

comment fillbetween from pgfplots does not work inside groupplots
The bug appears to be related to layered graphics, more specifically to cell picture=false. If you add set layers,cell picture=true, to your groupplot, it will also work for 1.11 . I will look into it.
