comment Picture taking up the space left on last (twocolumn, balanced) page
Would it be possible, for the benefit of Tikz newbies, to elaborate a bit on 1. and 2.? This works, but for me positioning the picture on the page is basically trial & error without really understanding what I'm doing... the parameters to shift seem completely un-intuitive to me.

Yep, works like a charm... in the MWE. +1. Checkmark will be given as soon as I figure out why it doesn't work in my document (where the image is centered on the last line, i.e. the top half rendered on top of the text)... ;-) (I'm a complete Tikz noob, so I have a hard time finding the right thing to tweak. ;-) )

comment How to properly 'make' a latex project?
@uckelman: Maybe. The Makefile posted was basically verbatim what I used myself at that time (and still use), with comments added. At some point I'm happy to leave "well enough" alone, especially when considering a tradeoff between "simple" and "polished" in a SE answer. Including dependency files isn't that easy to explain, and somewhat OT for tex.SE.

comment How to properly 'make' a latex project?
@uckelman: MyDoc.pdf is not only depending on MyDoc.tex, as the Makefile states, but also on the various generated / included files. Only latexmk knows which ones that would be. So we need to run latexmk in any case so it can inspect if anything important has changed. You can use certain latexmk options to embed its dependency logic into the Makefile, but I did not do this in my example for simplicity's sake. Listing MyDoc.pdf in .PHONY is therefore the right thing to do; latexmk will return immediately if nothing needs updating.
