comment Change footnote “numbering” temporarily
Well, you're not limited to having \renewcommands in the preamble, you can have them in the document as well, so your approach would be: save value of footnote counter, set footnote counter to 0, renew \thefootnote, have your paragraph, restore value of counter and \thefootnote.

comment How to make listings code correct copyable from PDF and with hyperlink
When I last had the line number problem, I changed the format to // 127 and put them to the end of the line. (If you can't figure out how to win, simply change the game. ;) )

comment thmtools: theorem VI.2.1* = dual of theorem VI.2.1
I'm slightly confused. It sounds to me like you want [restate=...] and the restated version is marked by having its number starred? (What happens to subordinate equation numbers? I can't even remember what thmtools does in that case, I hate restate that much :D )

comment Is it safe to temporarily redefine \and, \or, and \not?
Slight problem: some documentclasses need their specific definition of \and in the headers. (Journal styles with authors in header, mostly.)

comment thmtools: How to prevent pagebreak between theorem and proof?
I think proof is pretty much always a list and lists tend to insert a negative penalty before they start (i.e., a break between theorem and proof is made more favourable than a break after the first line of the proof).

comment How to get this theorem numbering to work?
Since you don't usually get to have anything starting from 0 anywhere in LaTeX, this is not trivially possible in thmtools. Maybe what you want re: starting from 5 is not to reset the section counter at all for each chapter, i.e. (chapter, section) should behave like (part, chapter)?

comment Sectioning paragraphs, such as for different cases inside a proof
IMO, just cope with the \qedhere. amsthm's behaviour is really quite simple once you get it: you need \qedhere if your environment ends with a list (in the TeXnical sense), which is, for common intents and purposes, displayed equations, subtheorems -- as you found out -- and itemize/enumerate. NTheorem's alternative approach is fragile and requires multiple passes, so yes, endmarks are tricky.

comment Difference between \relax and % for ending a line
@David: point taken, neither can % end a delimited argument because it's removed too early. Can't think why I'd be at the end of the line and unconditionally gobbling something, but maybe that occurs if one doesn't go the "usual" routine of making ^M active.

comment How to undo a \def (i.e., Need a \undef capability)
... conditional on the fact that no control sequence named \@undefined is defined. (But I think that's assumed at some places in the kernel as well, so \def\@undefined{} would likely break a lot of stuff anyway, so the user will notice.)

comment How can I restrict the placement of images?
The order of figures in the created output will usually match the order in the source. (May not be true you're mixing figure with non-floating figure mechanisms, like the ones where text is supposed to float around the side of the picture.)
