comment Enclose an entry in an enumerate list in parentheses
Related, yet unanswered question with respect to the "do not want to mark the end of item by hand" aspect.

comment Enclose an entry in an enumerate list in parentheses
I would love to use this with beamer, but looking at the redefinitions of item and the list environments, I have a feeling that it would not work. (Can't check at the moment – no LaTeX for the iPad...)

I feel that this is worth it to become another package...

comment Graphics file extensions and their order of inclusion when not specified
@HeikoOberdiek Sorry to bug you, but ... this brings us just back to the original question of rationale: I perfectly understand the compatibility argument, but still do not understand why PNG ever had precedence over PDF in pdftex.def (i.e., in its very first version)?

comment Graphics file extensions and their order of inclusion when not specified
@HeikoOberdiek Yes, but ... compatibility to what? Given that PNG is (historically) newer than PDF and no other driver seems to give PNG precedence over PDF this seems to be quite strange.

comment Graphics file extensions and their order of inclusion when not specified
I have always wondered why .png has precedence over .pdf in pdflatex. I mean, if you have a vector and a bitmap version of the same image, the bitmap version should be preferred? Does anybody have a clue about the rationale behind this?

comment I want a slide deck as dense as a chalk board in a real lecture. How do I get Beamer-style overlays without Beamer?
I guess it would be more easy to teach beamer the dense layout than to teach overlay commands to article. The multicol package might be a good start to get dense columns. Splitting across slides can be realized with beamers allowframesplit (which, however, does not work together with overlays).

comment Multiple footnotes at one point
A nice tutorial on how to use \futurelet! This solution seems to be so clean and simple that I wonder what are it's drawbacks. I mean, why there is a dozen of packages and classes for multiple footnotes that all fail on the integration with hyperref?

+1 for the cool idea to implement this on the UI level by a simple command sequence

comment Why do some vector graphics included into a document force rasterization of the whole page and subsequently ruin the look of the text in cups?
@Christian: I would refrain from that and my strategy is exactly the opposite: PNG processing by pdflatex is actually quite limited and can lead to sigificantly higher compilation times. For this reasons I usually convert all PNG images to PDF.
