comment Matplotlib PGF images in subdirectory
Great, thanks. The chapterfolder example is also really useful -- finding something like this to break up my thesis is on my list of things to do :).

comment Curve through a sequence of points with Metapost and TikZ
Forgive me for asking here, but after putting \usetikzlibrary{hobby} into my document I get the error "Undefined control sequence: __msg_kernel_new:nnn { kernel } { show-array }" on line 169 of pml3array.sty (fresh copy of hobby from CTAN). This is with both pdfLaTeX (1.40.13) and xeLaTeX (0.9998) from the Ubuntu repository copy of TexLive 2012. Hence my assumption that LaTeX3 couldn't be used alongside 2E. Am I missing a step?

comment 'Standalone' TikZ pictures
@MartinScharrer OK, thanks for clarifying that. You might want to edit your final example here too :). Thanks for all the useful packages you have written also.

Unless I have something mis-configured (or my XeTeX is too old), mode=buildnew does not work with XeTeX.

@AndrewStacey forgive me if I'm missing something, but that package seems to require LaTeX3. I'm quite happy copying the quick method in your last update, I was just curious if there was a package for the 2E compatible stuff.

+1, especially for the quick version. Is it in a package somewhere?

comment Automatically indexing references by author and year
Awesome, that works beautifully thanks. After a bit of exploration I think I see how all that fits together. If at some point I manage to confuse myself I'll come back and ask another question.
