comment pgfplots update Texlive2014
As far as I can tell, version 1.10 is the last available on TeX Live (and on CTAN).

comment Automatic bold for every first character of a line
@Thruston It's not really a supported LaTeX command, of course.

comment Starting a picture at the left position and enlarging it to fill the whole page
You don't need the rule, but just \noindent\hspace*{-\dimexpr 1in+\hoffset+\relevantmargin}\makebox[0pt][l]{...}

comment Does \Twoheadleftrightarrow exist? How to write my own?
@HeikoOberdiek I know; I was just surprised that this happened with CM fonts, when I discovered it some time ago. I guess that Knuth has never used \longrightarrow in scriptscript style, which I'm not really surprised of. ;-)

The strange behavior of \joinrel is also visible when you try \longrightarrow in scriptscript style: see i.stack.imgur.com/wgVZb.png

comment Does \Twoheadleftrightarrow exist? How to write my own?
@tobiatesan Look into Herbert Voß's “Math Mode” (texdoc mathmode); in section 38 it is explained how to define \xleftrightarrow and it should suffice to adapt the definition in order to use the double head arrows.

This looks like an incomplete installation; can you try doing apt-get install texlive-fonts-recommended?

comment \#\#\#\# becomes “##” in printout
@A.Ellett That's an example of TeX's habit of doubling #'s.

comment \#\#\#\# becomes “##” in printout
It seems that \url is overly zealous and assumes two consecutive # come from TeX's habit of doubling those tokens in output, so it reduces ## to #. If you use ######## you get ####; or do what Gonzalo says.

comment Passing command output as a parameter to the other command
I know very well that one can use simple macros; but why reinventing the wheel each time?

comment Passing command output as a parameter to the other command
@wipet Thanks for noting; I just forgot a pbcopy<colstr.tex, so I pasted the same version that I used for preparing the new example.

comment Why does amsmath use fraktur for real and imaginary parts?
amsmath has nothing to do with this: \Re and \Im are defined by LaTeX in essentially the same way as in Plain TeX; apparently Knuth likes that notation. I agree with you, but that's opinion.
