comment Python code in LaTeX not running
Pythontex is definitely the best way to integrate python and TeX. Can one in principle with LuaTeX avoid the three-step process by calling python from Lua's os module?

comment Telling Tikz/Tex to produce raster instead of vector in resulting PDF
From the question and comments it is still unclear why other tools (Ghostscript, Acrobat, ImageMagick) to rasterize a PDF document are not suited much better for this task. Why develop something like this just for TikZ?

Can't you just use the 'boxplot prepared' handler so that the data confidential data is never going into LaTeX in the first place?

comment The SumatraPDF Inverse-Search for any arbitrary Editor
It should work nicely by following the link given by Henri Menke. Basically each editor tells Sumatra via the given parameters what it has to do to enable inverse search. When you switch between editors you have to close all running instances of Sumatra.

comment Suppress \unspace command to force biblatex to add spaces (DIN 1505)
This looks really strange and I have not seen any journal using this format. DIN 1505 is supposed to be replaced with DIN ISO 690 which does not seem to include this format, so I would recommend using the updated version instead.

comment Are there any open research problems in the world of TeX?
Could you elaborate a bit how LLVM could speed up the compilation? I thought the modern TeX implementations are written in C and interpret TeX files. Which parts can be replaced by LLVM in the toolchain?

comment Create a “List of Effective Pages”
@AlanMunn: I was thinking of something very rudimentary such as latexdiff writing a command that writes during shipout xxx changed to yyy on page 3. For anything fancier you are completely right and a more involved procedure is required.

comment Create a “List of Effective Pages”
@ChrisH: Yes, I was thinking of purely consecutive page numbers. If the page numbers represent the structure of the document this makes much more sense. Tying a change to a page number is still strange in 2013 when even pilots replace their reference books with ipads.

comment Create a “List of Effective Pages”
So if you add one longer paragraph on page 3 then all pages after that are marked as modified? This is a strange concept but if that is the case one could get something such as latexdiff and modify it a bit to write to a variable where the first change happened.

comment Tikz externalization figure placement problem with hyperref / eso-pic
Not a solution but maybe you can avoid eso-pic? TikZ can also place items absolutely on a page.

comment Problem with encapsulated text in shaded node with tikz
I cannot reproduce this behavior with Adobe Reader 10.1.7 or Sumatra PDF 2.3.2. So if this was a bug in Adobe Reader it is fixed in the current version.

This works nicely for small MWE and also more complicated figures. Thank you for this workaround and the quick response.
