comment Suspending environments and resuming by another environment
Interesting idea! Basically this means that you want to temporarily escape the current group (or inject stuff in the outer group), a bit like \global, but just "one level up". I don't think this is possible, but I am looking forward to the answers of egreg, David, Bruno et al.

Just use conditional compilation, that is, replace the commenting in and commenting out by defining respective environments with the comment package.

comment OS X: umlauts in UTF8-NFD yield “Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:̈ not set up for use with LaTeX”
Ah, thanks for the clarification! As a "typical (even though experienced) LaTeX user" I have to shamefully admit that I have never heard of csplain format before and don't have a clue what format generation is. I kindly suggest to edit the answer so that the applicability becomes clear also for the average LaTeX user.

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>.
