comment How to automatically generate Venn diagrams given the inclusion relations?
So, if somebody writes up one of these comments as a question I'll give you the bounty, I'd prefer an answer, but I'd rather give it to someone than have it disappear.

comment How to automatically generate Venn diagrams given the inclusion relations?
So, those are good tools for this. Any idea how I would actually go about generating the diagram? Do they have built in functions to do this, or would I have to write my own? Are there known algorithms for this?

comment Strategies to deal with \ being in an awkward place on the keyboard?
I'm not overly familar with Emacs. I was taught Vim in school, though I was never overly fond of it. Is the idea just that you use an Emacs macro to simulate "\"?

On an interesting note, -r doesn't seem to work on OSX with sed. Thankfully I have access to a Linux box, trying it now.

comment Automatically replace all |foo| with \abs{foo}
That was my thought too. It is strictly speaking a regular expression problem, but I thought it was a common enough use case for LaTeX, and a place where refactoring tools aren't quite as common compared to more conventional programming languages.
