comment Is usage of \ell instead of l in math mode best practice?
If \ell can/should be used for liters also depends on the country, you are in. In German-speaking countries the \ell is commonly used for liters in all places, while in English speaking countries it's not.

comment Is usage of \ell instead of l in math mode best practice?
@ergeg But there are use cases when a specific symbol is common in a physics or mathematics group or theory. The symbol produced by \ell is common in statistical mechanics, for example, where the non-usage of it could leed to confusion in the community. Another example would be the distinction between the angular momentum in classical (l) and quantum mechanics (\ell), which is often made by choosing different symbols for the same letter.

comment Compile time optimized “area under analytical curve” plotting with pgfplots?
@MarcoDaniel Yes, if you just want to ad hoc fix or "workaround" the compilation time. But coming from a C++ background, I'd still like to produce optimized code that does not need precompiled stuff. ;)

These two (first prefered) look best by far, IMHO, compared to all other answers.

comment How to change part and chapter pages on KOMA-Script?
@MarcoDaniel I'm not yet sure about the layout. I hoped to learn how/where to change the layout at all to try some designs out. I have no problems with "low-level stuff" myself (redefining commands), if I just knew which ones are important. ;)

So, there's no pdfLaTeX way?

comment How to make the math font slightly thicker?
@egreg fourier + tgschola looks a lot different from fouriernc (both in text and in math). I like tgschola much more. But the "officially" matching fourier has some rather big spaces on some sub- and superscript combinations that look rather strange without lots of manually tweaking. That's why I wanted to try something different.

comment Are the TeX Gyre fonts designed to match each other?
@Herbert The Font Catalogue lists them without math support. And the TeX Gyre Pagella Math and the TeX Gyre Termes Math (the only two TeX Gyre with math support yet) don't work with pdfLaTeX (which I'm using).
