comment TeXshop Won't Compile My Indices
No, splitindex is not necessary; it's there as a safety measure because the number of write streams is limited. With just two indices hitting the limit is unlikely.

comment listings line numbers work with one lstlisting but not another
It seems that every line in which a math formula is present triggers numbering the next line.

Did you try imakeidx instead of multind?

comment Scaling a glue in TeX
@HeikoOberdiek I'm sure it does. But the aim was not converting the factor to a fraction. AFAIK, e-TeX operations round rather than truncate.

comment Using skip (glue) with pgfmath (truncating plus/minus parts from a glue length)?
LaTeX lengths defined with \newlength are rubber lengths (skips, in TeXbook terminology), while \pgfmathsetlength is only able to cope with rigid lengths (\dimen registers). Unfortunate clash of terms.

You can't use \NewEnviron for processing verbatim material. There are already similar questions on the site.

@JosephWright Yes, or converting the factor to a fraction, and using \multiply and \divide.

comment Metapost “odd” operator fails with negative value?
@AndrewSwann That's what happens; but where is it written? On page 85 of the most recent manual (table 10) we read “Is the closest integer odd or even?” and no mention of negative integer is made.

It's not a new feature: I tested with Metapost from TeX Live 2012 and the result is the same.
