I've been using LaTeX since I started university 6 years ago, and grateful to everyone ever involved in the kernel, or in the various packages, distributions and websites, those who introduced me to it and those who answer related questions!

I'm following with interest the developments on LaTeX3 and also the alternative engines, which I hope to one-day be able to exploit more!

comment Is it a bad idea to use \begin{section} … \end{section} in LaTeX?
To complete Bruno's suggestion, one needs to add \advance\ss@sec\m@ne to \endrelsec (actually \endsect in Will's newsec package) before the \begingroup.

comment Suppress frame title when using allowframebreaks in beamer
@user41974: If there is no title, then it doesn't take any space (at least in the default beamer theme), so I am not quite sure what you are asking. You can add the option [t] to the frame to get it to align at the top of the slide instead of the vertical center, if that helps?

comment Hyperref + footnotebackref in longtable
@dardisco: Yes, exactly. source2e/latex.ltx has the original forms of \footnote and \@makefnmark if needed. And also longtable changes footnote handling. footnotebackref is a very small package so I'd start with that. Just open up the sty file (either on your own machine or from CTAN if easier) and inspect! For specific commands, latexdef can be useful (and there's lots of questions and answers involving it on this site).

comment Hyperref + footnotebackref in longtable
@dardisco: Sorry, didn't put much explanation in! The tag is what hyperref uses as an anchor. The first patch converts footnotebackref's setting of \BackrefFootnoteTag within \footnote to be global instead of lasting only for current group (\xdef instead of \edef), and the second part ensures that \BackrefFootnoteTag is expanded when \@makefntext is called rather than deferring it to when \@makefnmark is called (footnotes don't get created straight away when in a table but are saved for recalling later, but by then, multiple footnotes will cause earlier tags to get lost).

@DavidCarlisle: Many thanks for the suggestions, I have edited them in. If those are the only likely problems then I am happy with this.
