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.

comment TikZ/TeX: Minimum line width/maximum resolution
Alright, I found the culprit: I did all my tests with LaTeXit, which is kind of nice for small tests. However, if one saves the PDF, LaTeXit apparently pipes it through the MacOS Quartz engine, which caused the effect. If I compile with pdflatex directly, it works: 0.1004pt (or simpler: 0.01bp) gives the right thickness.

comment TikZ/TeX: Minimum line width/maximum resolution
Hm... that yields 0.18 pt in Adobe Illustrator (which makes sense, if the previous result was 0.179). Something strange is going on...

Aaarg! I know that TeX points are not points. How could I forget that...

comment TikZ/TeX: Minimum line width/maximum resolution
This yields lines with 0.0179, 0.0161, ..., 0.0107, ..., 0,0018 pt. The 0.0107 comes pretty close, have to try if that works.
