comment pgfplots fillbetween doesn't work with newenvironment
I believe there is no difference from a technical point of view. It is just a best-practise to put macro definitions into the preamble, especially if they contain @ characters.

comment Naming Externalized Images via MD5 Sum
@Jeff the current implementation of the external lib computes the "next file name" and computes the MD5 afterwards. The up-to-date check happens in \tikzexternal@check@uptodate@mode in tikzexternalshared.code.tex. Feel free to work with it. Keep in mind that md5 sums are only available in pdftex and luatex, so your feature would be unsupported for all other drivers.

comment Naming Externalized Images via MD5 Sum
Using the md5 sum as file name is no supported use case currently. You could consider figure name/.add={}{section1_} in order to number images inside of sections. If that would help, I could elaborate on the details. The problem as such would remain, but only inside of sections.

comment Create violine plots
It believe that is unlikely for now: there are items of higher priority and I have to find time to implement them.

comment Adjusting 3D-view in pgfplots by custom transformation matrix for multiple axes
I am wondering if it works to extract the cm of pgfplots and copy + adopt it to your example... (perhaps combined with disabledatascaling?) but I do not have time to experiment with this approach

comment Adjusting 3D-view in pgfplots by custom transformation matrix for multiple axes
I suppose that your CM is just "almost" the same as is used by pgfplots. If you manage to determine the very same one combined with your flattening + skew transformation, it should be fine, I suppose. However, I do not have time to think about it right now. My solution looks good even if the CMs are just partially in sync -- the small differences are hard to notice for the single text nodes. In other words: I am sure there is a solution as yours, it might just need more time to find it.

comment LaTeX Compilation & Memory Question
Your understanding regarding "as long as one single plot does not exceed..." should be correct. This does not address the problem of computation time, of course. You may want to read about the external lib (see pgfmanual.pdf) or standalone to reduce recompilation time.

comment TikZ: Drawing an arc from an intersection to an intersection
Ah - I remember that I got feedback about 0-based indexing being inconsistent with the rest of the intersection libraries and I added L<1-based-index> as alias for A<0-based-index>. Apparently, your version of pgfplots does not have the L/R syntax. Please substitute L by A and decrease the following integer by 1.

comment Error in TikZ pgfplots that previously compiled
From what I understand, pgfplots attempts to parse "Jan 24" as a date. However, the expected date format is YYYY-MM-DD; everything else is invalid input. To my knowledge, this should never have worked; no version of pgfplots/pgf has accepted such a date format. Are you sure there has been no change to this code? There might have been changes to the axis cs notation; perhaps you need to add curly braces around which were unnecessary previously... ?
