comment TikZ positioning: is it possible to use arithmetics?
How does the vertical line above all nodes fit in the picture here? Is it simply a horizontal line that should appear at the top of the whole picture or is it a content of the construct of nodes. For the first, the backgrounds library already provides the right tools.

comment TikZ: Combining multiple paths in and outside foreach
@Linus I have updated my answer. @setup turtle digits is simply an auxiliary style that makes it possible to define the styles 1 through 9 consistently. You can check out two other answers of mine that uses the turtle library [1] or at least the basic principle behind it [2].

comment TikZ: Make node height span several others
A few things to note: 1. Don’t change the outer separators if you can’t predict the outcome. 2. I have already included the code from this answer in the positioning-plus library. 3. Do not use node names that start with +, - or |.

comment multi-part nodes/anchors in a resistor-like symbol which has been split horizontally
@JohnChris Both node parts do not appear. The info key is simply a wrapper for the label key for the symbol shape. As far as I know the circuits libraries do not support actual node text in the shapes …

comment \uline within a pgfmath expression produces an error
Although the \sbox and \wd way is certainly preferable and the most safe. With the package etoolbox, one can simply do \robustify\uline (which protects \uline from expansion by \edef) and \pgfmathprint{width("\uline{blabla}")} will give 26.66675 then. (Of course, this doesn’t work if you don’t know what to expect.)

comment how to draw nodes with same size
@TomBombadil Which definition of \clap do you use? The width of a single digit is still needed: \def\clap#1{\makebox[\widthof{0}]{#1}}. \clap from mathtools doesn’t give the best results. (In both cases, I added \fboxes around the text of nodes 9 to 12.)
