comment side-by-side xtables in Sweave
BTW, in the comment about longtables I meant to say because they can break pages you can't put them beside each other. (It was probably clear from the context anyway.)

@MYaseen208 Just move the \captionof commands to right after the \centering command (before the code that generates the table).

comment side-by-side xtables in Sweave
I don't think it's possible to put two longtables side by side independently of Sweave. Because a longtable can break pages, you can put them beside each other.

comment Footnotes or sidenotes in tables with tufte-latex?
The standard advice on footnotes in tables is that they should be part of the table, and not part of the regular footnote apparatus. Given this advice, it would be better to use the threeparttable package. And since you're using tufte you should really also read the booktabs docs on table design. :-). Here's a nice example of how to use both: Add notes under the table.

comment Align Environment and Spacing
For readability of your source file, you can simply put a comment character (%) to separate the lines in your first example. For highlighting code in tex.sx posts, you can select all the code and then click on the {} icon.

comment lineno and syntax package incompatibilities
Although listings could be made to emulate the syntax package fairly easily, out of the box your example doesn't format the grammar very nicely compared to the syntax package. You also forgot to number the lines in your example, which was the point of the question. Can listings ignore blank lines in its numbering system?
