comment Processing Plain Text
Hm... I would probably use sed or perl or something like that: perl -0777 -i.bak -pe 's/\n\n\n(.*)\n\n/\n\n\\section{\1}\n/' plain.txt would reformat plain.txt as desired, but keep a plain.bak backup file in case something goes wrong. If you are using Windows line endings, the RegEx may have to be adapted, though.

comment tikz: mathematical expressions in variable names without pgf macros
Quick shot: (a\the\numexpr\i+1\relax\j). Well, for playing around it would certainly help if you provide a complete and compilable minimal working example (MWE).

comment Beamer: including items only some slides using a relative syntax
Just write \item<+-.(3)> my item. The topic is intensely covered by the great answer of Joseph to Relative overlay specifications in beamer, which appears to be a duplicate of this question. Please take a look at it, if you agree we could close this question.

comment PDFs want to scale down
Intuitively, I would expect that at least one of the boxes should not start at '0.00 0.00', because of the margin.

comment PDFs want to scale down
Nice investigations, but behind all that I kind of lost the point of your answer. What exactly are these boxes and what does the output of pdfinfo tell us? Why do you compare to a PDF from TextEdit? Does it not show the weird behavior in AR?

comment website for easy creating biblatex code?
Nice, but like so many of these services it "kills" accented characters (e.g. ö becomes o, which is quite a difference). Hence, one has to manually validate each and every entry!

@Jubobs: Well, I certainly would prefer you learning Lua and extending listings for Lua-based lexers.
