comment Node at tip/pinch of brace in Tikz
If you're fine with turning the direction of the text, you can use sloped, I think.

comment Node at tip/pinch of brace in Tikz
below right with a bigger distance should do it, I can fiddle around with it when I'm home. The only other way I can think of would be looking into the code of the decoration and monkey patching it.

comment Solid of revolution about arbitrary axis
Ah yes, in 2d you only need x = pi. So you embed 2d into 3d in the z=0 plane, so the axis of rotation is x=pi, z=0. I'll try to write an answer when I'm at the computer.

comment Solid of revolution about arbitrary axis
@thejmazz, ok, if you're not interested in rotations about arbitrary axes, we should be able to do it without. I still don't understand what is meant by "the line x = pi". To specify a line, you either need two constraints on coordinates (like x=pi, y=0) or a base vector and a direction vector.

Also, how is x=pi a line? It's a plane, I'd say.

Revolution about an arbitrary axis sounds more like you need to look up how a rotation matrix looks like in 3D.

comment Node at tip/pinch of brace in Tikz
Why is \draw[decorate,decoration={brace,mirror,amplitude=10pt,raise=3pt,aspect=0.6},un‌​derext=1.5pt,very thin] (A) -- node[below=2pt] {$2^{j-1}$} (B); not good enough?

comment How do I get a straight line in \begin{tikzpicture}[decoration=Koch snowflake]?
@Leo, in case you were just reading the literally first page of the PGF/TikZ documentation, I really recommend reading through the first tutorial, and everything will be very clear.

Your second example doesn't work on my computer, though.

You haven't really understood what I'm aiming at. I asked about how to improve the TikZ decoration, not how to draw the diagram differently with pstricks.

Good idea! It "nearly" works, it seems that with that option the arrow is not connected to the path anymore, but there is a small white space between them.
