comment Reordering sides of comma in the journal entry of Bibtex records
I agree with @egreg. Is there any context where you'd actually use "Information Theory, IEEE Transactions on"? If not, I'd be inclined to fix them in your .bib and forego any ongoing translations during bibtex processing. For what it's worth, when I get bibtex entries from online database, they almost always need some corrections or additions when I insert them into my .bib file.

comment What do Sweave/knitr offer that make doesn't?
If your colleagues know latex and not R, the make workflow may be better. In my field, most people use or are well aware of R, but almost noone even knows of LaTeX

comment Make .Rnw child document independent from main document
If the variables file simply loads the data into your session, then yes, that's what I meant. What happens exactly when you try this? Is the data not loaded?

comment Make .Rnw child document independent from main document
Does variables.Rnw need to be a .Rnw file? Or could you use source(variables.R) from within an R chunk instead?

comment Is it possible to place a chunk within a chunk?
Please provide a minimal working example. In this case, a complete working Rnw document for the i=70 case would be very helpful in figuring out what exactly you're trying to do.

comment Insert a TeX file created with knitr into a main TeX file
@Nadeeka I don't think you can omit the preamble from the knitr output, but you could reorganize your files so that you included the 'main' document into the Rnw, rather than the other way around. That would save you having to manually edit the knitr output.

comment Different colors for default and language-specific listings
Thanks, that's great! However, in my workflow it is awkward to modify anything after the header. Althouh piping the output through sed might be enough to implement your answer in an automated way. I'll look into this.
