comment How can I load the table of contents into an lt3graph?
Now I am curious: Do you have any specific use case in mind? I mean, besides the fun of doing it just "because you can" :-)

comment Can Microtype Change the Kerning Between a Dot or Comma and a Footnotemark?
Nice. Nevertheless, I prefer to put the \footnote commands also in the source behind the punctuation, so I can easily comment them in or out.

comment List of available TikZ libraries with a short introduction
@NikanaReklawyks: I am not sure if the need to be told to do so. The point in RTFM in this case is the emphasized Fine. The PGF manual is, IMHO, pretty good and already provides good introductory and overview chapters, so I just don't see the point on this extra list.

comment Parse argument with a number and an optional letter
@Astrinus: Right. The really cute idiom, IMHO, is the b, e, m dispatch via the macro identifiers.

comment Relative Order of Overlays in Beamer
@yo' Unfortunately not, as the overlay spec only defines which slides of a frame are shown, but not their order. So the result would be the same as in \begin{frame}<1-4>.

comment LyX and biblatex authoryear-comp and same authors: Parentheses wrong
I am not sure how this answers the OPs question. Apparently, he is already (and successfully) using LyX with biblatex and biber, but has an issue regarding the resulting citation style.

comment Shortcut for “vertical space” in LyX
@Dominik: Nice, I wasn't aware of that. However, to also get the results from an inset window (command argument), I additionally had to select "User Command". I have edited your approach into the answer.

comment Partial compilation commands/environment?
Note that the comment package provides a feature to define your own comment environments: \includecomment{stuff} and \excludecomment{stuff} in the preamble both define a respective stuff environment that is either included or thrown away throughout the document. No need to comment/uncomment lines in the document itself.

Could be complete nonsense (have no manual available), but have you tried leaving the defernumbers option?

comment How to remove http://dx.doi.org string from doi field in BibTeX style?
I agree with @DG': BibTeX entries exported by scientific databases can almost never be taken "as is" – they simply contain too many errors (e.g., forced title capitalization, wrong escaping of special characters, ...). Basically, one has to edit them anyway, the doi-is-url issue is just another nuisance.
