comment Submitting a journal article as a single tex file
@barbara: I have every sympathy with the journals on this! (After complaining to an editor, I was told about some of the nightmares that they had to deal with.) But I also want to be able to use all the benefits of a programmable typesetting language. Unfortunately, not all journals are as longsighted as the AMS, and I prefer not to upset them if possible. So I fold in all my style files as best I can (note that it's not just about packages from CTAN, I write quite extensive style files for my own use). Knowing what pitfalls to avoid would be very useful.

comment Submitting a journal article as a single tex file
Whilst, of course, in any given instance it is probably the right thing to do to contact the journal and find out just how strict they are, it is the case that several journals (including maths journals) make this requirement and when trying to be nice to the journal (in the hope that they'll publish the article!), one is still faced with the issue of collapsing a document with several "non standard" style files in to one. Often they also say, "please remove all unnecessary commands", which is a bit of a nightmare in itself! So I think that the broader question here is worthwhile.

comment Stretching integral
Take a look at the answer to: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/2414/… as I suspect that that might solve your problem. If it doesn't, please edit your question to explain why that doesn't work so answerers can better help you. If it does, this question will be closed as a duplicate of that one to help others find the answer quickly.

comment Adding a large brace next to a body of text
@Seamus: Since I answered this, I've changed my way of doing it. I now place a \vphantom{X} in the node which makes it better placed. (Actually, I have \tikzmarkX which does this, and various other variants .. but you just knew that I'd have a more complicated scheme, didn't you!)

comment Tikz - move/reposition arrow decorations (arrowhead length/size)
Try the solution that Jake suggests in this question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/11813/… (I don't know if it will work or not as I haven't tried it yet, which is why I'm posting this as a comment)
