comment Good LaTeX Table Editor?
I'm a little disappointed with this feature. The full document export is much too complicated for me to cut and paste into another document, and the table fragement option appears to lose all formatting (at least, it loses multicolumn cells, and all alignment choices that I make.)

comment Prevent a paragraph break after a section heading
So I went with \RequirePackage[loadonly]{titlesec} ... and further down \titleclass{\subsection}[0]{straight} \titleformat{\subsection}[runin]{\normalfont\bfseries}{\thesubsection\space\spac‌​e}{0pt}{}[.] \titlespacing{\subsection}{0pt}{0pt}{1em}, and I left the other headings untouched. (So all titlesec knows about is subsections. Chapters and sections, which appear in the TOC, don't need any changes). It's hacky, but if you don't want hacky, don't write a thesis (or at least use memoir).

comment Prevent a paragraph break after a section heading
@Alan, I'm getting there now, but it involves rewriting all of my sectioning and table of contents stuff to do it this way. Is there another way that I can accomplish this without having to rewrite everything?

OK. I need \RequirePackage[loadonly]{titlesec}.

This isn't working for me. I'm getting Undefined control sequence. \section \ttl@extract\section when I \RequirePackage{titlesec}.

comment Can pdflatex (or any tex package) automatically rescale included images which have been reduced in size?
How about this? \newcommand{\doConvert}[2]{\immediate\write18{mkdir -p downsampled; convert #1 -resample % 300x300 -resize #2 downsampled/#1}} \newcommand{\imgRs}[4]{\doConvert{#1.#2}{#3x#4}% \includegraphics[width=#3, height=#4, type=#2, ext=.#2.rs, read=.#2.rs]{downsampled/#1}% }

The degrade.sh script can probably be edited to not hard code the .jpg extension, though then you're rewriting anyway. Why not take degrade's idea of using a separate directory for the downsampled images (instead of changing the name), and hack that into finrod's solution? Add a \write18{mkdir -p downsampled} to the \doConvert command to ensure that the directory is created if it doesn't already exist.
