comment When should I upload my new style?
OT @mbork, but what is wrong with bitbucket's TOS? This is the first time I am hearing this. Some of the popular packages like Beamer are maintained on BB.

comment Which TeX should one start out with?
+1 for "have a look at both LaTeX and ConTeXt and you will see which one works better for you". This is really a subjective choice, as feature-wise there is very little difference between the two formats.

comment Which TeX should one start out with?
You don't need to use XSLT to transform XML to HTML. Most modern browsers are perfectly happy to display XML+CSS. Other options are to write in Markdown and convert to LaTeX/ConTeXt/HTML using pandoc; or write in semantic HTML5 and process it directly using ConTeXt.

comment Why can't curly braces be used as a delimiter for \verb? i.e. \verb{foo}
@percusse: I haven't looked to LaTeX's definition, but ConTeXt does not make a character active. Basically, it grabs the next char, checks if it is \bgroup; if so uses one definition, else uses 2nd definition. See, for example, this implementation in t-filter.

comment Why can't curly braces be used as a delimiter for \verb? i.e. \verb{foo}
@percusse: You don't need to define { and } to be active to use them as delimiters. For example, in ConTeXt, you may use \type{...} for verbatim text. Of course, LaTeX like \type|..| or \type+...+ also works. Ditto for ConTeXt packages like filter and vim module that work with verbatim text.

\texttt{...}, {\tt ...}, or \mono{...}, depending on whether you are using LaTeX, Plain TeX, or ConTeXt.

comment How to adjust the arrow head tip of a bezier curve?
I don't know pstricks, but Metapost handles this as follows. Save the original path, shorten it by the required amount (by using metapost primitives that allow you to traverse a certain distance on the path) and then draw the arrow. The same idea should work in pstricks as well.
