comment TikZ multipart nodes: How to set text attributes (opacity) for some/all parts
Yeah, that is probably true. The respective PGF code is a "bit" daunting... I can live with the macro; reading the value out of \tikz@textopacity makes it pretty usable. I will neverthelss wait a couple of days for other answers before accepting; maybe some hero feels tempted to delve into pgflibraryshapes.multipart.code.tex :-)

comment TikZ multipart nodes: How to set text attributes (opacity) for some/all parts
That is already a lot better than my hack with a nested tikzpicture. Do you see any chance applying this by a style (e.g., every two node part)?

comment how to use “count” feature?
The count feature was added to PGF for version 2.1; however, older TeX distros just ship version 2.0. So my first assumption would be that your PGF package is a bit outdated.

comment List of available TikZ libraries with a short introduction
I totally do not understand the purpose of this list that just mimics the very good PGF documentation. Apparently, other members consider it as very useful, given the number of favorite links, which is a mystery to me. Am I overlooking something?

comment In a multiple file LaTeX document, is there a way to tag each page with the file that generated it?
It's perfectly acceptable to answer your own question – it might be a valuable source for others! You should also consider accepting it, eventually (maybe after waiting a couple of days for other answers.)

comment Is there a way to automatically change kerning between commas/full stops and footnote marks?
This looks very promising, indeed. I would love to have it as a CTAN package.

comment Using listings package without installing it
Depends on the features you use. If it is just about nice typesetting of listings, you could go for an approach to typeset them to separate PDFs and include them as images with '\includegraphics`. Packages, such as standalone or preview might help in this process. If, however, you are using lots of \lstinlines this will probably become more painful, even though still doable.

+1 for taking the effort to turn this into a -- well-documented -- package. Good work!

comment Lyx - put all text with same language
Please test if it works for you; I will then turn the comment into an answer.

comment Lyx - put all text with same language
Choose Edit-> Select All to select the complete document text and then Edit-> Text Style-> Customized.... In the dialog you can change the language of the selected text. Unfortunately, Select All does not really select all of the text (it misses to select some elements inside of floats, e.g., image captions and footnotes), so some manual afterwork is necessary.

+1 for a nice solution :-)

comment How can I store variables and iterate over them?
Maybe you could elaborate a bit what exactly is your extension/generalization?

comment Detecting all pages which contain color
"Because printing costs for color pages are much higher". While that is indeed true, this does not imply "printing on a color printer is more expensive": All half-recent professional color laser printers I am aware of account color/bw pages page-wise, that is, if you print a 100 pages job with 10 color pages, you pay for 90 bw pages and 10 color pages. So I suggest checking this with your print provider. It might save you from some manual and error-prone sorting of pages :-)

comment Methods to edit column order in an existing LaTeX table?
+1: for a simple, but nice approach to decouple presentation order from data order!

comment Highlight certain texts in listings or minted
Hi Francesco. Please take a look at this question and report if there is anything else you need. The answers partly provide pretty sophisticated ways of highlighting, but this one shows how to use the moredelim option of listings to apply simple font commands, such as \bfseries to highlight certain parts.

comment Modern book design, margins and typed area
+1 for what is going to become an excellent introduction into the classics of page layout. Very nice, Yiannis!

comment Choosing styles conditionally in TikZ
@Jake: No, that was fine. I had found the comment, but still do not know to what exactly the already in "as I already said" refers. Said where? Anyway, I have improved my solution that now resembles yours, but with the tests in the style definition.

comment Choosing styles conditionally in TikZ
@Jake: Hm... I now found the \isin part, but I must still be overlooking where they already said that more complex conditions are needed. I will wait for a more complete MWE that details these constraints.

@JosephWright: How should I proceed from here? Can you confirm this to be a bug? Should I report it on the project`s bugtracker?
