comment How to declare variable sizes in tikz to let LaTeX decide how to fill the page
@JosephWright These days I unfortunately do not have as much time for TeX-SX as I used to. Any comments of mine that should be converted to answers are fair game for others to do so.

comment Tikz, Tangent Line to a Circle
(I think we've seen this before, but for a rectangle node shape. The solutions for that ought to be applicable here, but my search skills are sadly lacking.)

comment Tikz, Tangent Line to a Circle
It's all to do with line width. The position D.north is on the very outside of the circle, so the middle of your incident line is aligned with the outside of the circle line. There are a couple of ways to solve this depending on how technical you are prepared to be.

comment Fancy Table of Contents
(Our general policy has been to not down-vote beyond -1. Once it's at -1 then it's clear that there's something wrong with the question and it needs improving. If it doesn't get improved, it will be closed. Beyond -1 is therefore unnecessary. So @ChristianHupfer is right to find that. There's a meta question on this which I can't find right now.)

comment Practical use of Lua
I'd like to link to the Sieve of Erasthones question: tex.stackexchange.com/a/44748/86 The lua answer works far, far faster than a TeX version would do.

comment Workaround how to use expl3 functionality in tikz
I strongly suspect that the problem is due to the fact that in expl3 then : has the catcode of a letter but TikZ expects it to be other. One way around this is to define a token list containing a colon with catcode "other" and use that in place of the bare : in your code.
