comment Set math mode as default for each item in list
May be for that tasks package is better suited. In any case, it would be great to have in tasks also what you propose of math mode by default.

comment Why does having an empty definition, {}, when defining a new command execute whatever is between the brackets when the command is called?
By expansion, in the second place \new{test} would expand to $\sigma${test}; the only “special” thing is the grouped word, but that's something you can have in any text like {this} one or {\em this} one.

comment The difference between `\the\numexpr` and `\number\numexpr`
Without actually knowin anything, I always thought that \number was \the with the only difference that if followed by a dimension it would print the number of sp. What are the differences?

comment Automatically add \texorpdfstring for math-mode in section titles
@sheß May be you prefer \def\fake@math#1\){\detokenize{#1}} so you get a little more information than [math]. Or whatever you choose, but I mean that it contains \detoknize{#1} so you actually know what was in that particular math mode.

comment How to generate a smaller \sim with respect to text
I was asking in case there was something more to that decision. In any case, since it's so simple, I don't see why tradition has taken us to a different path.

comment How to generate a smaller \sim with respect to text
Small doubt: since using \m@th is a good practice, why is it so commonly used at the begining of math mode $\m@th#1#2$ rather than at the end $#1#2\m@th$?

comment Best Key-Value System For LaTeX
expl3 and its l3keys seems also plausible; and it's going to be the “main future” of LaTeX. In a general case, I would personally choose that, and pgfkeys in second place because I like the easiness and flexibility to define new keys.
