comment what TeX package(s) should I use for a Church Bulletin
"A picture paints a thousand words" ... can you upload a picture of a typical bulletin (or a page from one)?

comment How to redefine the \emph command in Beamer?
@Joseph: Yes, I quickly gave up the chase of which uses of \renewcommand were legitimate and which were a bit .. dubious.

comment How to redefine the \emph command in Beamer?
@Joseph: Yippee-do! I had a hazy recollection that you were somehow involved, but couldn't remember for sure. I'll be interested to see your patch and see what the most efficient way of doing this is (and why I was getting those weird things with \includegraphics as I couldn't see why they were being generated when I dug deeper).

comment Non-repository management of TeXLive packages on Ubuntu
@Joseph: I don't know of one, do we want one? I presume that this is well-covered by the TUG/TeX FAQ sites. I suppose that there's no harm in duplication.

comment Non-repository management of TeXLive packages on Ubuntu
I'd forgotten that question! I was just effectively typing out my answer to that question again when your answer appeared. Just to add that installing TeX Live 2010 outside of the Ubuntu package manager works absolutely fine (Option 3 in my answer to your linked question) and is very easy to do.

comment Exercises in lecture notes without predetermined placement
Not an answer, but just a comment: the LMS document class does something a bit like this with addresses. They get specified in the title, but typeset at the very end of the document. So I'm hopeful for you!

comment How do I examine a token?
@Joseph, @Bruno: Stop trying to answer the not-question! I tried hard to make a general question out of my specific case of interest. If you want to discuss the background further, may I suggest we move the discussion to my room! Here, I wanted to get a list of things like \if and so on which can detect the value of a token.

comment How do I examine a token?
@Joseph: Well, I may be out of luck on my motivating question, but please note that that wasn't my actual question!

comment Styling the text placed on \path [line] using \tikzstyle.
@Hach-Que: I don't know how nesting works with styles; it sounds like a useful thing to know, though. I can think of a few obvious experiments to try. I think that only the outer brackets are [], all the others are {}.

comment How to add a custom symbol to LaTeX?
I do exactly this! I have customised \Implies and \Iff to make them a bit larger and longer for presentations.

comment Different spacing caused by \newcommand and \def
Can you post a screenshot? I just tried it, and I thought I could see the difference on one test but when I zoomed in then it disappeared.
