comment Cyrillic in (La)TeX
@Igor Well, one typical scenario is that one needs to use a complicated .sty file with Cyrillic control sequence names / some .tex file with a lot of Cyrillic labels.

comment Draw only some segments of a path in TikZ?
@Andrew Probably. The problem is, I don't know how to combine "\path .. decorate" (that allows to apply a decoration to a subpath) with "postaction={decorate}". Anyway, I really wonder, how postaction is implemented -- if it stores the path somehow it's just what we need here.

comment Draw only some segments of a path in TikZ?
the only thing I can think about is that one can define a decoration that saves all path-constructing commands into some variable that can be used latter...

comment Draw only some segments of a path in TikZ?
@Andrew \pgfusepath fills and/or draws the current path and then destroys it (and AFAIK there can be only one path at any moment). So it's not hard to define a decoration that just draws a path and apply it to a subpath -- but it won't leave any path that can be filled.

comment Applying a postaction to every path in TikZ
(Re: ..even replacing..) Of course: postaction={<options>} creates a copy of the original path with these <options> added -- in this case without any additional options -- but a path is created anyway. So one really have to remove the key, not just make it empty. (Or so it seems.)

comment \colon for maps in opposite direction
works in simple cases (so I've accepted the answer), but try e.g. \[\sin\colon X\rightleftarrows Y\cocolon\cos\] — the space between \cocolon and mathop is too big

comment \colon for maps in opposite direction
@Willie: yes, I'm looking for some command \rcolon (\cocolon ;-)?), exactly — hopefully it's already defined and there's no need to invent a bicycle.

comment Placement of tokens in tikz/petri
great, thanks! general syntax is something like "\tikz@def@grow@tokens{number of tokens}{number of the token}{x shift}{y shift}", I guess

did you try it? I did — and it also doesn't work

comment Using non-ASCII characters in packages
It works, thanks. But it makes .sty file quite unreadable (and un-editable)... Is there some tool to convert strings between such commands and unicode, btw?
