comment includegraphics - inserting png image leads to blank picture
Alternatively (if you like the draft option for the black markings of overfull boxes, but still want to see the images) you could add a final option to the graphicx package, which overrides the default set by \documentclass[draft].

comment Are there purely expandable variants of \MakeUppercase?
Programming in Lua, chapter 20: Both string.upper and string.lower follow the current locale. Therefore, if you work with the European Latin-1 locale, the expression string.upper("ação") results in "AÇÃO". And I suppose LuaTeX redefines this current locale thing to mean Unicode.

comment Are there purely expandable variants of \MakeUppercase?
Lua itself knows nothing about Unicode and encodings, the string functions just delegate to the system, so it depends from the hosting environment (which is the LuaTeX engine in this case). Since LuaTeX claims to work on Unicode, we should assume it works here, but I didn't test it (nor read the code).

comment () or {} after a command
One tiny addition: When having a macro that accepts parameters with {...}, and you only want to give a single token as an argument (a single letter or a control sequence), you can leave the braces away. (Or otherwise around, when you forget the braces, only single characters are taken as argument. Remarkable for things like '\textbf`.

comment Alternate he / she in text
Wouldn't it be more sensible to put the \xspace at the end of the macro (before }) instead of inside each branch of the if?

comment texdiff for multi-file documents in subversion
I don't really know a better way, but thanks for sharing your way. Maybe you could somewhere publish your script?

Actually, with current TeXlive the default for shell-escape is to allow certain commands. You may want to switch this of totally. (Set shell_escape = f in texmf.cnf.)
