comment Using \newcommand and \input
@Peter: without \expandafter\input\expandafter{\ExpandedFileName}, you'd run into the same issue as before anyway, wouldn't you?

comment How to change the default ':' in subsection to paren ')'?
What documentclass are you using? \subsection* would not usually insert punctuation after the title at all...

comment Easy-to-use reference-able environment for restating theorem-like environments?
This appears failry trivial (typo too good to remove) based on the existing syntax \begin{prop}[continues=mysecond] in thmtools, which would by default give "Proposition 2 (continuing from p. 1)".

comment mdframed theorems within beamerarticle script
If all else fails, you can use the notheorems option to beamerarticle and define the environments Satz,... entirely yourself. Not nice, but at least you won't have to go though the entire source.

Sure. (He said, without checking what the problem of section 4.1 was :D )

comment nag l2tabu caption/label checking versus \subcaptionbox
I'll have to doublecheck, I vaguely recall defining \nag@captionprovider and \nag@labelprovider for that purpose. But you're correct, it won't distinguish the starred form.

comment Figures on left pages, text on right ones with class book, numbering only on right pages
Is this the code that ended up in the semioneside package (mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/semioneside)?

comment Having several keys refer to the same bibliography entry
I've packed it up at absatzen.de, but I don't remember why it's v0.2 anymore. (Also, it's quite possible that it will not work with more advanced syntactic forms of \cite. I think it'll accept anything that has a comma-separated list of labels as the first mandatory argument and pretty arbitrary stuff between the command and that argument.)

@GonzaloMedina: Thanks, I'm a bit swamped at work right now and didn't get around to it.

comment Shaded theorems (thmtools) spanning pages
@TGSM: thmtools' shade and box settings all pass through to thmbox (if I recall) anyway. Nothing stops you from adding \begin{mdframed} (or whatever its syntax is) to the beforehead/afterfoot hooks.

comment What would you like to change about TeX/LaTeX/XeTeX/etc.?
How is "What would you like to change about TeX/LaTeX/XeTeX/etc.?" a discussion solely of the tex(1) executable? (Never mind the fact that the unfortunate naming dates back to the TeXbook, as far as I recall.)

comment Multi-OS Portable TeX system
I think the only "non-portable" aspect of the linux version is that the installer can put symlinks in /usr/bin, so there's not much danger of things going wrong there.

comment Multi-OS Portable TeX system
Looking at tug.org/texlive/doc/texlive-en/texlive-en.html#x1-410004, you might be fine just installing in Windows (to be on the safe side), and using the portable option.
