comment How to batch generate badges with a list of names?
There's also csvsimple, which would surely be enough for this kind of task. Would take the fun out of the answer below, however....

comment How do I mirror bibliography entries at the foot of the page?
Can you provide/link to an image or two that shows this style? It is not common across all disciplines.

comment How to cite and reference a manuscript type of work by title
Without having more information, I can only recommend that you use biber as the engine and then add the following field: options = {useeditor=false} to the entries in question. See §.3.1.3.1 of the manual for more information.

comment Texmacs to latex conversion failing to convert user macros
I'm sure there are people eager to help, but "does not work" (or the equivalent) is rarely a helpful description of the problem.

comment Citing a portion of a larger work
It really depends on the bibliography style (the .bst) you use, but it is common for them to have @inbook, @incollection, and @inproceedings. As to which one works best, it will depend on your best judgment as to which entry type suits your requirements best.

comment Using setspace package breaks footnotes link
@York -- (Assuming a TeX Live install) try texdoc latex2e for the core and texdoc <package name> for indivdidual packages (not all manuals were created equal, however); for the engines, try texdoc-ing luatex, pdftex, and xetex respectively. If not on TeX Live, try the site [texdoc.net](texdoc.net).

If you nest another level, you need to double the # again (####1).

comment Publishing a package update on CTAN?
There is a procedure for taking over (seemingly) orphaned packages, but -- reasonably so -- it takes some time after notifying CTAN people of your intention and after allowing for a reasonable amount of time for the current maintainer/developer to respond. Traditionally, comp.text.tex has seen some discussion about these sorts of matters.

comment How to create a list of articles including the references in each?
In your .bib entries, the field is keywords not keyword. I'd also consider using the field related (if using a biblatex version > 2.0 and biber). The \fullcite route would also work, but it would require using a notkeyword list in your \printbibliography command if you don't want the entry to appear in the main list.

comment Getting the author name to appear when using the Vancouver bibliography style
@Ahmed -- Oh, sorry: there was a typo in the \namecite macro: it should be #1 not Z, which would mean you can use it the same way you use the \cite command (minus the optional argument, which would require a slightly different macro).

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
I see, I think: so, in essence, use (say) Junicode but with a different number set that doesn't have the ambiguous '1'..?

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
Do you mean you want OSF for all numbers but 1? (Surely not....) THe point about the environments was simply that you can, in the class(!), make it so that various environments do the right thing automatically: it would not be left to the users. Anyway, with fontspec it would be easy to provide a 'user level' switch for numbers (which you could also use in environments as needed). One other consideration: what happens when users load their own fonts?

comment Contextual mix of lining and old-style numbers
Why are oldtyle numbers only suitable for academics? I suspect most 'non-academics' would not be thrown by an oldstyle number 1. I'd recommend instead providing a class option that allows the user to pick whether oldstyle numbers should be used or not rather than mixing oldstyle and non-oldstyle numbers; you can add the 'specific command' too for the special cases that are sure to arise. And look at etoolbox's \AtBeginEnvironment and \AtEndEnvironment for hooking into various environments.
