comment Putting solutions next to T/F choices
Wow this is exactly what I had in mind! Two optional questions: (1) can I change the spacing between the "F" and the shaded box? (2) What happens if my explanation goes longer than a line? I will try this out as soon as I get home. Again, thanks!

comment How do I define a new punctuation mark?
Is it possible to redefine the usual exclamation point so that this new stylized one shows up? That is, using "!" instead of \myexclamationpt?

comment How can I make (some) $money$ out of my TeX skills?
I have friends who take papers that have been TeXed by the authors, and "augment" them to work with the journal's specific packages, etc. They make a good deal of money ($30/hr, 40+ hours per week). EDIT: I should mention they are employed by the journal.

I think you should try Mico's suggestion: having just the answer "Me" would be incredible.

comment Graph of dependencies from LaTeX file
Yes, true. But again, conceptualizing this is not the hard part - it is pretty much the "obvious" way to do this. The hard part is actually implementing this by reworking ref/label.

I think it is only necessary to record the theorems referenced when in a proof-like environment. And that makes things easy, as you could simply have ref add all the references to some buffer, then when the proof environment ends, write it all out (you wait till the proof ends to ensure you've encountered a label command). But as I mentioned on the other answer, this seems easier in theory than in practice. And of course there is the conspicuous lack of code here! :)

... and then use what it reads in to write the graphviz file line. I think this is easy in theory, but not so easy in practice. Simply recording the arguments to ref will not give proper naming/numbering, unless one reworks the entire ref internals themselves.

comment Graph of dependencies from LaTeX file
I had not thought of the case of having lemmas between the theorem and the proof, but that is probably not the worst thing in the world, since in that "real world" case, the proof always begins "Proof of Theorem 4.9", etc., so a backref to the actual theorem is included right there in the proof environment! And while I agree the approach is "fairly easy", neither answer has included any code! I don't think redefining ref is such a trivial matter - correct references take 2 passes of LaTeX for a reason. The ideal redefinition of ref would wait until it was reading from the aux file...
