comment Defining a sequence slot programmatically
Where seems to have a definition intended to catch things like Where[{x,y}={2, 3}, f[x,y]] that they added last and is never tried. To fix it, use DownValues[Where] = RotateRight@DownValues@Where

comment Setting and changing MetaInformation for arbitrary objects
@MichaelStern luck. I just felt it was sensible for nested temporal data's to be flattened out, tried it and worked.

comment Possible bug: SparseArray Part assignment loses default value?
@LeonAvery you want a workaround to set the background or to set all the elements to a value?

comment How to generate and label multiple histograms as Query operator(s)?
Perhaps titanic[Composition[Histogram[#, ChartLabels -> Automatic] &, Pivot[#, 2] & ], {"age"}]. (but Pivot is probably going away soon)

comment DeleteDuplicatesBy is not performing as I'd hoped. Am I missing something?
@JacobAkkerboom you are right, that output doesn't make sense to me either

comment DeleteDuplicatesBy is not performing as I'd hoped. Am I missing something?
@JacobAkkerboom I agree. I don't really mind the messages, I take them as bonus warnings. Furthermore, it does work in the sense that it returns what it should (right?. e.g GroupBy[Unevaluated@{Print@"a"; 2 + 2}, Hold, Hold]), even though it leaks. But I hope they started taking the leaks more seriously and not evaluate stuff they don't need to. One sometimes needs to count on "sensible behaviour".

I can't find DeleteDuplicatesBy documentation for anything other than lists and associations

comment Normal // Association // Dataset workaround for some user query operators
A different way to write the same thing could be data[GroupBy[Key["key1"] -> KeyDrop["key1"]], First]

@belisarius, put that as an answer, so I can downvote it

comment Why is SparseArray and InterpolationFunction always grayed out?
Same on Linux, it isn't as grayed as when you edit

comment Issuing user-defined messages takes a long time (Message is slow)
I'm curious. Why is this speed relevant? I never get more than a few messages, and then they just don't show because they are repeated, or I start trying to abort.

comment Dispatch displays rules incorrectly and evaluates when displaying
Its an undesired behaviour but patterns are expected to evaluated, I am not sure I would suggest avoiding HoldPattern even if it wasn't strictly necessary

comment How to prevent notebook from moving/reshuffling code around while one is typing?
How do you deal with comments. Is there a shortcut for (* *) , you created one, or you just live with it (like I've been doing)?

If you like how code cells work, you can turn the autoindenting off for Input cells

comment Normal // Association // Dataset workaround for some user query operators
+1 Nice. And the current undocumented Pivot will exist as some other function, Transpose will be extended, or it will just disappear?

Nice use of that peculiar descending operator GroupBy
