comment Compile with emacs and update the view in docview
@Sebastien: when you start using Emacs, eventually you'll learn Emacs Lisp;). It's kind of a slippery slope, but headed upwards, in the direction of the most powerful and elegant computer language in existence (I mean Lisp in general, not necessarily Emacs Lisp).

comment Compile with emacs and update the view in docview
@SeanAllred: I guess that advising the TeX-command-sentinel function would be the best idea.

I'm pretty sure ImageMagick would be of use here.

comment Where can I get a list of macros beginning with \var
Why not grep the sources? The problem then (more or less) reduces to knowing which are primitives and which are defined - but this is easily solvable with The TeXbook. (Of course, some formats might redefine things - both primitives and macros, e.g. \input - but then, source2e.pdf to the rescue!)

comment Use a character other than the backslash for commands
If you want to use a Unicode character, you'd probably have to use XeTeX or LuaTeX. You might also consider using Markdown or XML and converting to LaTeX (or using it natively with ConTeXt).

comment Wind power and tikz force
Out of curiosity: what for? "13 wind turbines positioned in a quarter of circle" sounds a bit... strange. ;)

comment License of the Minion Pro fonts that came with Adobe Reader
I grepped the Licence.txt file that came with my Adobe Reader 9 and didn't find such a paragraph. Where did it came from?

Have you seen this: ctan.org/pkg/pgf-umlcd ? (I never tried it, only found the link.)

@DavidCarlisle: having seen the other answers, I can see that you're probably right...

comment Vertical skip between p{…} rows of tabular
Nice, though a bit hackish. (I thought about it too, though I didn't remember the syntax of \rule, so thanks!) If nothing more "elegant" shows up, I'll accept this one...

And what if I want to increase the spacing of only one row? (And yes, this is sometimes justified IMHO.)
