comment TikZ reversed arrow wrong placement
Tamas: I've taken the liberty of simplifying your code to get to the heart of the issue, but I added it rather than modifying what is already there. Hope that's okay!

comment Is there a package to write slide and narration contents at the same time but produces each separately at the final?
As Martin says below, this is possible using the Article Mode where it is possible to divide your document into "stuff inside frames" and "stuff outside frames" and process the two separately. However, that's not quite the scheme you describe as both your sets of stuff are inside frames. If that is what you want, it would be very easy to implement but I don't know of a package that already does it.

comment How to present a vertical multiplication/addition
@Jan: Thank you very much! You've just saved me hours on my lecture preparation time! (Well, maybe I exaggerate, but not by much. I use octave to generate/check that my matrices are sensible but then have to retype it in to the lecture risking copying errors. This will mean I stop making them, or stop making so many.)

comment How to present a vertical multiplication/addition
@Jan: Do you know how to get octave to do that? I keep looking but haven't yet seen how to do it.

comment Figure next to list (caption problems)
I've deleted the migrated version of this question as this seems to be the one that everyone is concentrating on.

comment How to remove blank page without modifying book, chapter, or other package specifications
Presumably you have access to this style file so it's not actually a black box, but a transparent one. To continue the analogy into absurdity, although you cannot get inside it to change what it does, you can see which gears get messed up and carefully build a surrounding box that un-messes them. (This is basically what Konrad is suggesting). Unfortunately, without being allowed to look in the transparent box, it's hard for us to know which gears are getting mashed.

Very nice! I especially like the fact that it does the multiplication for you (now if only there was a package that did matrix multiplication ... then there wouldn't be so many errors in my lectures).

comment PDF inclusion: found PDF version <1.5>, but at most version <1. 4> allowed
I've been getting this error recently, but I can't remember exactly what circumstances led to it. If I can track it down, I'll see if I can post an example.

comment Are boolean operations on TikZ shapes possible?
Very neat. I feel that this is more "TikZ-y".

comment Drawing random paths in TikZ
I guess that one of the problems with this is that things that look random often aren't! With the corollary that if something is truly random, it may not look "random" to Joe Reader (or Jo Seminar-Audience).
