comment Enlarge limits by absolute value when using symbolic coordinates
Unfortunately, something like enlarge x limits={abs=bar} can only increase the limits by a mutiple of x. Is there a way to increase the limits by, say, 0.5*bar (i.e 1cm)? I find a little bit unfortunate that there seems to be no way to increase limits w.r.t. to a different coordinate system than axis cs.

comment Enlarge limits by absolute value when using symbolic coordinates
OK, maybe I should have been clearer: relative distances (your enlarge x limits=0.3) won't work for me; I need absolute distances. Suppose I have a second bar plot with just the foo and bar bars; this plot's width would thus be smaller than the three-bar plot's. And while the distance between bars stays the same in both plots, the distance to the boundary doesn't, as it is computed relative to xmax - xmin. This is ugly.

comment Combining subfloat and newfloat packages for sublistings environment
Awesome, thanks. Must have done something wrong with my own search-and-replace effort earlier, which catapulted me into the land of incomprehensible error messages. :-(

Works like a charm.

I don't use any special package for that; just plain-old tikzpicture \filldraw and arc paths. (No package could easily do what I wanted to out of the box: a pie chart within a ring chart; sort of like a pie with a crust.)

comment Typesetting one symbolic coord differently than the others
Works. But out of curiosity, how would a solution using etoolbox look like, in particular in the light of Why is the ifthen package obsolete?
