comment Multiple side-by-side signatures in letter
Sure thing: ERROR: Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup. ---TeX said --- <recently read> } l.153 \closing{Sincerely,} --- HELP --- From the .log file... I've deleted a group-closing symbol because it seems to be spurious, as in '$x}$'. but perhaps the } is legitimate and you forgot something else, as in \hbox{$x}'. In such cases the way to recover is to insert both the forgotten and the deleted material, e.g. by typing I$}'`

comment How to keep track of packages one has already used?
For the specific example you pose, about having different header styles in different parts of the documents, take a look at tex.stackexchange.com/q/37574/3731 for instructions on how to accomplish that with fancyhdr. For other packages that deal with headers, tex.stackexchange.com/q/1247/3731 offers a few suggestions. Regarding your additional question, tex.stackexchange.com/a/18550/3731 also gives a good suggestion for the general case. If you have something specific in mind, you should post a new question with a MWE. It helps others find a lot easier.

comment When is it appropriate to use \paragraph?
Thank you for the Bringhurst reference. Legal documents were the only ones that came to mind when I asked this question, but I did not want to bias the answers. Now I know!

comment Methods to edit column order in an existing LaTeX table?
I use space and tab when importing; most importantly, I look for the visual cue in the Excel import-window that tells you how the data will be imported, and choose the delimiters accordingly.

@DavidCarlisle, in emacs, if the input is not as nicely aligned as in the MWE, align and align-current work well and can take care of that.

Alternatively, you can use Emac's Org mode to convert the data to a table with (org-table-create-or-convert-from-region) and move the columns around with M-<left> and M-<right>. Then you can either export it in LaTeX format or save it as a text file.

comment Longtable vs. supertabular: Which is right for which job?
@DavidCarlisle, that alone is enough to convince me to make longtable my package of choice. Could you phrase it as an answer to the original question so I may mark this as answered?
