comment Is there a makebst-like style definition helper for creating biblatex styles?
I don't think such a tool would need to cover the whole power of biblatex. For many bibliography styles makebst is good enough. So a tool that asks the same or similar questions and spits out an .bbx file would be enough for many people. The rest who needs the special capabilities of biblatex could take it as a starting point.

comment Can I write a range in [0-1) style with siunitx?
@SebastianSchmitz, for angles you would need the non-existing \angrange. @JosephWright, maybe this is some missing feature?

comment pgfplot: 3d function plot
That are two questions :). For papers, you usally have to provide the figures as separated image files. Most journals do only provide a basic set of packages. For your thesis you can do it as you want. I prefer to have them inside of the thesis, because all definitions of colors and fonts, and package options are automatically shared. Downside is that the compilation takes some (long) time.

comment pgfplot: 3d function plot
No, in general you do not need lua. The pgf math library is very good. In your special case in the previous question, there seems to be an accuracy problem. I guess it is something like subtracting very large values, which differes only minimal. Here accuracy becomes very important. BUT this is the first time I read about those problems with pgfmath, so it's not a problem you face often.

Is this really the function you want to plot? Or do you intend to plot the function from the previous question and the one given here is just a place holder?
