comment Why are Beamer subsubsections evil?
I agree with what you are saying here but in this emerging era of slideshare, figshare, etc... having slides that can stand independent of the presenter on some level is an asset. Thus, the slides are not the presentation may no longer be a good rule of thumb.

comment Is there a way to configure pdflatex to make all but the .tex and .pdf files hidden files?
@Qrrbrbirlbel I don't have a lot of scripting experience but if it is something that could be understood by a relative novice and it works, then absolutely.

comment Why doesn't TeX/LaTeX have reasonable defaults in certain cases?
This seems more like a rant than a genuine question.

@FaheemMitha thanks for the suggestion, I will take a look. So far I have not found it to be too clumsy. Although I did consider markdown as a possibility. I am not totally committed to LaTeX if something else would fulfill my needs.

@FaheemMitha thanks. I sympathize. I added an answer myself because I have begun writing things that I know will likely need to be in Word in html markup. Word just opens it and formats it without much fuss so it might be an option. So far I am pretty happy with it as a solution.

comment Barebones or Packages
I think that one of the greatest strengths of LaTeX over WYSIWYG word processors is the conceptual separation of content and formatting. When I was just learning LaTeX, it took a while to accept this and I would compile my docs constantly to see what they looked like. As I became more comfortable with LaTeX, I learned to focus on content when I was writing and now I rarely compile until the document is fairly complete. This isn't a specific answer to your question but I think it argues more for a stick to the basics approach and let LaTeX do what it does best while you focus on the content.
