Is this possible to do without manually editing the .xdy file?

comment Vertical centering of text spanning multiple rows
Not related to your question, but check out the booktabs package and the discussion regarding vertical lines in its manual.

comment How do I typeset units like MB, GB (megabytes, gigabytes)?
@drasto: It works on my installation. Are you loading the package with the correct option? Are you redefining \byte somewhere?

comment Creating a URL downloading command to be used with e.g. \includegraphics
Hacked together something that may be of interest: the download package.

comment Creating a URL downloading command to be used with e.g. \includegraphics
I don't know. I just see end-users being surprised that they need an internet connection to typeset a document, that the original URL has 404ed, etc. I don't see the advantage over just wgetting and saving the file in the first place—why should TeX do that for you?

It would probably be possible. The questions is, would it be desirable?

comment Is there a way to configure pdflatex to make all but the .tex and .pdf files hidden files?
True. I guess a good compromise is to only check in the PDF at meaningful points. For instance, I check in the PDF when bumping the version number of my CTAN packages, but I usually don't check it in on all the commits between versions.

@Neo: The latexdef command-line tool is useful.

comment Is there a way to configure pdflatex to make all but the .tex and .pdf files hidden files?
@mbork: Why? Most modern VCSes handle binary files fine, and with package updates frequent on CTAN you can't guarantee identical typesetting of old documents anymore which means you'd want an old PDF as well, even if this breaks the usual "only sources" rule of version control. (And if you don't check in the PDF, git clean -x will remove it.)
