comment Parsing hexadecimal numbers to binary and iterating over bits
It is not absolutely clear to me what you want, hence I write this as a comment: Take a look at the bitset package by Heiko Oberdiek. It provides the abstraction of bitsets of various lenght, which can be initialized from a hex value by \bitsetSetHex. Individual bits can be tested (\bitsetGet) or all set lists transformed into a comma-separated list (\bitsetGetSetBitList) to be then iterated with, e.g., \foreach.

comment How to normalize a vector in pgf/tikz?
Nice. The hardcoded 1cm, however, should better be calculated from the actual x and y norm vector values, which might be different from 1cm.

comment LyX participates in the Google Summer of Code - which project ideas could be suggested?
@Bugbusters: No, it won't! Of course, the compilation should take place in a background process with lower priority to not disturb user interface response; as even cheap laptops have at least two cores in these days, there won't be any user interface latencies. I also would not trigger it after every single character, but employ some clever heuristics. There already are TeX IDEs who have implemented this pretty well (beginning with the famous, but unfortunately discontinued iTeXMac)

comment How to typeset converge in probability in lyx or latex?
Yes, but "how to do it in LyX" really is the point here. You answered it and deserve the rep; the chance (and necessity) for somebody else to contribute further to this answer is pretty low, so CW doesn't make a lot of sense here.

Why CW? This perfectly answers the OPs question.

comment Overbrace in lstlisting of Scala code
@Felix: Please see updated code and screen shot. The issue is how to pass the overbrace text. In the updated solution, it can be given as optional parameter to the \btHL[<overbrace text>] command. Basically this means that you have to define an own moredelim for every overbrace text. Does this work for you?

comment Refer to labels of merged pdfs?
As your letter is probably not very ToC-intensive, I would go the other way round: Take the CV as the master document and embed the cover letter's PDF with pdfpages as the first page. The \includepdf command provides an interface to create a ToC entry for the embedded page.
