@Jake: Yes, good point. I'll edit that in as an alternative.

comment Incorrect plot using Pgfplots
@Altermundus: Nor do I! But I've run into the radians/degrees issue with TikZ often enough that it was the first thing I thought of when I saw atan and it seemed to fix it.

comment How do I do a one-shot MathOperator?
To answer your last question: the case in point was that I was explaining alternative notation, so I wanted to say something like \(\colspan(A)\) is also sometimes written \(\oneshot{col}(A)\), whereupon I would never refer to \col again but always use \colspan.

comment Getting those %#!^& signs in the footnote!
Nonetheless, it answers the question that I actually asked and is a simpler method if one doesn't want to wrap it in a new macro. Thanks.

comment Define a variable in TikZ
The "right" answer to this depends on how you envision specifying x1, x2, y1, and y2. If you just want to vary them explicitly, then the \newcommand approach is as good as any. If they are coordinates, then the \coordinate approach is best. But if they are to be computed from something else, then something a little more complicated (but not much) is needed; however, exactly what depends on how you want to specify them.

I think that you should add this as a solution to the original question as well.

@dick: That URL breaks things anyway! It's nothing to do with the solution, just that \footnote{\href{...}{...}} is not easy to deal with. I've asked a follow-up question to see if anyone else can shed some light on this: tex.stackexchange.com/q/12855/86
