comment Bluebook support in Latex?
One other comment. You're kind of conflating two separate issues in your question: citation/bibliography styles are logically independent of document classes. If there are other formatting requirements (such as specific sectioning styles) that are not related to citations, you might want to ask a separate question about that. The answers might be easier to come by too. :)

comment Bluebook support in Latex?
In my experience the number of LaTeX users in the legal field (even in academia) is vanishingly small. There is a very powerful alternative to bibtex in the biber+biblatex combination, but I don't think anyone has tackled this particular problem. Legal citations are informationally quite different from other academic citations (even those in the Humanities). But if the standards are well described, it should be possible to create some biblatex styles for them. See bibtex vs. biber and biblatex vs natbib for more information on biblatex.

comment complex nodes with tikz-qtree
Ok. It wasn't clear from your question whether you were using the tables for alignment or simply to allow line breaks in your node labels. If you need alignment, then the tabular is the way to go. For this kind of thing, I usually use a macro. See (the answers to) Understanding a \@for loop for an example of one that I use.

I've added an example to my answer. P.S. where do unaccusative verbs fit in your taxonomy? :)

comment Using tree-dvips with XeLaTeX
Honestly, I would redo this using tikz-qtree. It has a much easier syntax and gives you pretty much all of the same functionality as tree-dvips.

@PeterGrill That's the difference between plot and plot function.

@PeterGrill Yes. If you try to compile the document without gnuplot installed, you get garbage.

comment Is LaTeX scriptable through AppleScript and to what extent?
As others have noted, a lot depends on what you want to do. Applescript is mostly useful for interacting with Mac GUI applications. For good examples of this use, see TeXShop which has many such scripts. But the TeX binaries themselves are not Mac GUI applications, so depending on what you want to do, other scripting languages might be a better choice. Also, since Applescript allows you to call shell scripts from within an Applescript, it's possible to write hybrid scripts. This is what is done with many of the TeXShop Applescripts which are essentially wrappers for shell scripts.
