comment Table of tables with captions?
Side note: there is a floating table environment for tabulars you want to float.

comment Siunitx does not format numbers
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem.

comment Package for typesetting Feynman diagrams (efficiency of `feynmp` and `tikz`)
Looking further into it, it seems to be a result of the following bug: sourceforge.net/p/pgf/bugs/319

I can confirm that it works for Biber in Mac Mavericks.

comment Package for typesetting Feynman diagrams (efficiency of `feynmp` and `tikz`)
I've also tried with latest in TeXLive and CVS and it doesn't work. Something about using node=coordinate breaks it (although not using this option looks ugly).

comment How to specify the row height in LaTeX table?
@AramPapazian This can be fixed by using columns like {cc@{}c@{}} as the @{} will make the space either side of the empty column 0 pt.

comment Creating commands with a TeX `for` loop
This is impressive! Could you explain a little how the code logic works? I've never seen anything like this before.

comment Creating commands with a TeX `for` loop
It would be good if the title remained with the two words separated. I think one possible way is by \let\@tempb\@tempa at the start and then putting \modulespec{\@tempb} instead?

comment Creating commands with a TeX `for` loop
@ChristianH. I'm afraid I don't know enough TeX to produce anything working. I can add a minimal document to the question if that helps?

comment Creating commands with a TeX `for` loop
@JosephWright Removing the spaces is not an absolute requirement, I think there are few enough commands to define them by hand.

comment Indent entire section using only preamble
titlesec does something at the end of the heading which invalidates this; it indents the heading fine, just not the text afterwards.

comment What's the quickest way to write “2nd” “3rd” etc in LaTeX?
Which drawbacks? \xspace works in both normal and math mode.

comment Joining lines and text together (and a grey footnote) in a new environment for grey text
Yes, footnotetext is very handy in these kinds of situations! I use it mostly to avoid complications with tables and to allow one footnote to cover multiple columns. Glad that it works!

comment Joining lines and text together (and a grey footnote) in a new environment for grey text
And you did this using \footnotetext? Did you place \footnotetext in a grey area? That might cause the problem.

comment Joining lines and text together (and a grey footnote) in a new environment for grey text
What is acceptable then? Is one line of text enough before the final line enough?

I redid the answer without mdframed to get the title right, using a minipage to ensure that the box can never be broken across the page.

comment Joining lines and text together (and a grey footnote) in a new environment for grey text
Just to be clear, is it acceptable for the box to break across pages if there is text before each line?

comment Test for vertically overfull parbox
How would you change the name of the environment macro to something else in order to preserve the original behaviour of parbox? e.g. \fullornotparbox instead of \parbox. I see lots of \defs but none that are \def\parbox.

comment How to horizontally align all characters like a typewriter
This is fantastic. Considering a typewriter would never adjust any line spacing naturally, losing parskips is no big deal. (In fact, my final document will probably have some pretty stringent limits on line spacing for this reason.)
