comment How can/should I include annotated images?
Looks awesome. However, If try "Choose File" I can select a file, but it seems to get never uploaded. Also the LaTeX code doesn't change. (Safari 7.1.4 on MacOS 10.9.5)

comment Specify which overlays to take from another file
From your question it is not completely clear to me, how you want the local overlay specifications to interact with the included ones. Should the "last two overlays" from the picture [a] appear in steps 2 and 3 on "Second Slide" (as above), or [b] as steps 3 and 4 (i.e., after the items), or [c] as steps 1 and 2 (i.e., together with the items)?

comment Is there a way to put some of my project's files in a separate folder?
Hm... I remember I had that problem as well, but don't know exactly how I solved it. It may help if you invoke bibtex from the out folder, i.e. cd out;bibtex mythesis; cd-. If you are using biblatex anyway (which I have been doing for a couple of years now), you could also use biber, which provides an --output_directory option.

Try to add the output directory itself to TEXINPUTS. You may also consult kpsewhich --show-path .pfa | less to debut the search path.

comment texlive lineo and fourier packages for CentOS 7?
Well, in my experience the Ubuntu packages often point to the right name even on other systems, therefore I mentioned it. Anyway, there is always the option to download and install lineno.sty manually from CTAN.

@hugomg: I didn't comment on the output part, as you have already solved it. --output-directory is the key. (I use it all the time.)

packages.ubuntu.org suggest that it is in texlive-humanities. Maybe worth a try.

comment Suspending environments and resuming by another environment
Interesting idea! Basically this means that you want to temporarily escape the current group (or inject stuff in the outer group), a bit like \global, but just "one level up". I don't think this is possible, but I am looking forward to the answers of egreg, David, Bruno et al.

comment Multiple file editing with by changing one file only?
Just use conditional compilation, that is, replace the commenting in and commenting out by defining respective environments with the comment package.

comment OS X: umlauts in UTF8-NFD yield “Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:̈ not set up for use with LaTeX”
Ah, thanks for the clarification! As a "typical (even though experienced) LaTeX user" I have to shamefully admit that I have never heard of csplain format before and don't have a clue what format generation is. I kindly suggest to edit the answer so that the applicability becomes clear also for the average LaTeX user.

That looks promising. However, could you also explain how to apply this the the MWE from the question? (I just got a undefined control sequence \mubyte).
