comment Is there a good reason for lstlistings code to look so ugly by default?
Thanks, almost perfect :-) I would just add the "official solution", as suggested by @marczellm, somewhere below the joke, so that users just looking for a simple fix to the problem can find it.

"That was a joke, obviously... " sorry, but I did not find that too obvious, despite the following "More seriously..." line. Given that this is a long-term Q&A site and your answer is the accepted answer, I foresee new listings users adopting your solution.

One more small suggestion: Add a shebang line, that is #!texlua as the first line. Then, on UNIX-flavored systems, it is possible to make the script directly executable with a chmod +x ctanbib.lua command.

One caveat: The output of accented characters is UTF8. This of course is fine with biblatex and bibtex8, but many scientific venue require .bbl-files produced by archaic 7-bit bibtex.

After adding the line mentioned by @egreg it works for me. Great work, I particularly like the attempt to use the lua interpreter provided by the the TeX distribution anyway :-)

comment How can I automatically replace subscripts and highlight GoTo labels?
While it might be a good training to implement this in TeX: With respect to time-to-results I would also consider a pearl/python/sed script that does the "tediously formatting each listing" for you.

@Lars: There are a dozen possibilities to overprint to images, but your solution is pretty clever! Please move it from the question into a dedicated answer, so that the question remains not unanswered.

Have you tried to just pass an appropriate negative value to the xleftmargin option, e.g., xleftmargin=-1cm?

comment Tips for choosing hardware for best LaTeX compile performance
@DavidZ: The only AMD machine at our lab was the big AMD server (48 x Opteron 6180SE@2.5 GHz), which was more than ten percent slower than the Intel workstation (8 X Xeon E5620@2.4 GHz). The current Haswell generation is said to have further increased the advantage over AMD, so I would go for Intel. However, to be really sure I suggest to compare the CPU performance benchmark results at cpubenchmark.net or some similar site.

comment How to specify a direct color in a tikz picture
Like it, but somewhat find the resulting "post-fix" syntax counter-intuitive. IMHO, it should be left color={xcolor={0.5,0.7,0.1}} instead of xcolor={left color={0.5,0.7,0.1}}.
