Math professor by day, hacker by night. I teach calculus and try to implement teaching and new media technologies. I use a lot of LaTeX and the occasional scripting language.

comment Dynamic control values for Slider2D
@MikeHoneychurch: This is Mathematica 9.0.0.0 on OS X 10.8.5. If it works as expected for you on your newer setup, it sounds like this was a bug. But the best kind of bug, that has a workaround and is fixed in the current release.

Aha, works! As I understand it, Mathematica tries to guess the best control type based on the parameter description, and ControlType can be used to force a particular control. I'm surprised that it needs to be forced here but I'll take it.

comment Mathematica2tikz an equivalent function
Your coordList2TikZ function is quite useful; I modified it by spelling coordinates correctly and adding a \n to each coordinate pair. Without the extra newline copying-and-pasting from Mathematica to TeX was inserting backslash-newlines into my tex file at the continuation of each line.
