comment Beamer handout mode: explicitly printing “half-way” frames
I wholeheartedly agree in general – with the one exception of visualizing beamer animations. I found animations to be more accessible in this case as (a) they visualize, how things look on screen in presentation mode (e.g, "jumping" content is immediately detectable) and (b) they give one the chance to see the code and its result on the same screen without having to scroll up and down for ages. But if you don't like it, just revert the edit :-)

comment Beamer handout mode: explicitly printing “half-way” frames
I have replaced you overlay illustrations by (IMHO more accessible) animated versions (see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/23727/… on how to do this). Hope you don't mind, otherwise just revert the edit.

comment Beamer handout mode: explicitly printing “half-way” frames
@cfr: Sorry, I don't see your point. Also in your answer I find only cases where you increase handout: first locally than globally (as I do with all:, which implies handout:). Am I missing something?

comment Non copyable image in PDF
I think it is very important to mention here that all this is an Acrobat-only thing and by no means any kind of effective copy protection! With any PDFKit-based Mac-Viewer, for instance, (Slim, Preview, ...) I can easily select any rectangular region from the PDF and "copy" it into a new PDF (as vector image). Please make this clear in your question that you want to disable the "Copy" drop-down menu in Acrobat and are not looking for a general copy protection (which doesn't exist).

comment Nice scientific pictures show off
@cfr: Well, I don't understand the distinction either – that is my point. The question asks for "scientific illustations", you call it "scientific content", but what exactly does scientific mean here? How do you discriminate scientific from nonscientific illustrations? Can you give me some examples for the latter? Looking at the answers, I can't tell. IMHO, the word "scientific" is just misleading here and should be removed. Its all about "show your illustrations".

comment Should tcolorbox enforce inner boxes to be unbreakable?
I suggest to move the "Update" part into an answer, then. (We do care about our non/answered ratio, you know :-)

comment Should tcolorbox enforce inner boxes to be unbreakable?
Well, that is up to the developer of this nice package :-) No, seriously: I think you have a good reasons to change the semantics of the implementation. The main points to consider is how to deal with backward compatibility: Provide a class-level key that permits users to enable the old behavior, maybe with in combination with "this deprecated and will be removed in a future version" warnings.

+1 for not using a grid. Way more randomish :-)
