comment How to use 2cell in Lyx?
Unfortunately, Lyx cannot be tricked into not loading a package. However, have you tried: (1) adding 2cell to Document Settings->Document Class->Custom? (2) adding \xyoption{2cell} to the preamble?

comment How to use 2cell in Lyx?
I guess, LyX does not load it by default, but if you use it inside your LyX document, automatically adds the \usepackage[all]{xy} to the preamble.

Related: Why should I not use the Koma-Script classes. Maybe this already answers your question?

comment How best to procrastinate and learn LaTeX?
Just don't do it. Get out into nature and take some fresh air. And then back to your real project :-)

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for. Don't know how I could miss it.

comment Is XeTeX a complete rewrite of LaTeX/TeX?
So font management is partly delegated to OS-specific libraries (fontconfig vs. Apple font library). Does this imply any danger that the typesetting result may be different on MacOS than on other systems? (I remember horrible experiences with OpenOffice Impress on Linux, Windows and MacOS in this respect, which triggered my conversion to LaTeX beamer)

comment Is pdftex 1.40.13 outputting malformed pdfs?
I frequently have (with older and current versions of pdftex) the issue that the PDF resulting from a complex beamer presentation with lots of TikZ stuff is malformed. It cannot be opened (on OSX) by Skim, Preview, or Adobe Acrobat. This just occurs once in a while and a simply deleting and rebuilding has so far always helped.

comment OS X: umlauts in UTF8-NFD yield “Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:̈ not set up for use with LaTeX”
Great edit, the answer is getting better and better! One suggestion for the "MWE generation": As uconv is not trivially available for OSX you might instead use xxd to produce a hex-dump for NFC and NFD; include this in your bash script and use xxd -r there to generate the NFC/NFD strings. xxd is a pretty old (common) UNIX tool and also part of a vanilla OSX installation.

comment Making an anonymous PDF file using PDFLaTeX
@MartinSchröder: Much better now! It would be a really great answer if you get rid of the last "probably". Maybe you could just the PDF->PS->PDF conversion route to check?
