comment References to lists in theorem-like environments/writing # symbol to files
@Jonathan: good point. Still solvable by throwing enough resources at it. Will update example once I've had enough coffee. (Inhowfar would enumitem and cleveref not combine? cleveref hooks into a lower level than enumitem, you just have to tell it what the name for the counters is.)

comment Robust method to apply Hebrew numeral in an enumeration list?
Would not something like \makeatletter \def\hebnum#1{\expandafter\hebrewnumeral\csname c@#1\endcsname} \AddEnumerateCounter{\hebnum}{\hebrewnumeral}{XXX} \makeatother work? Lifted from the enumitem docs sec.2.3, I don't know enough about the xetex mechanisms to try with proper hebrew stuff.

comment LaTeX Markup Options?
@angerman: Of course, if we were to write a new typesetting system from scratch today, we might end up making different choices. Something like "as of Jan 1st, 2012, backslash becomes entirely optional" is not feasible in the given TeX ecosystem.

comment LaTeX Markup Options?
I think we should also bear in mind the time at which TeX was designed. A possibly small drawback like the escape character `` can make a big difference in the speed and techniques with which the source can be parsed.

comment Quotation with double quote and O results in Ö
@Warren: a linebreak counts as a space (unless "hidden" in a oomment), and here this would result in a space, for example, after the opening quote before the word OpenGL.

comment Quotation with double quote and O results in Ö
This, or skip that and take a look at the csquotes package. (Background for the OP: "+character is special when support for german is loaded, so that "a yields ä etc. If you don't like csquotes, "` and "' will yield proper quotes.)

comment Hyperref warning - Token not allowed in a PDF string
Yes, there shouldn't be trouble, at least not until you have %xx-escaped characters, stuff like that.
