comment LabelStyle doesn't affect PlotLegends
@Mr.Wizard Although that question answers this one, your answer doesn't answer that one, since the OP there wants a global solution, not a local one (see comment under top answer: "But I am interested in changing the default font, not the font of the individual legend instance."). I guess you could merge, to provide an alternate in case someone was satisfied with a local solution, but note that you'll lose the accept :)

comment Execute code when file is modified
@kale Yes, that would seem like a logical way to do it. It works very well in my example tests. However, you should also take your problem's constraints and size into account. For instance, reading in a huge data file every few seconds would be insane, so you might have to cache the results and read incrementally, etc.

comment What are \[InvisiblePrefixScriptBase] and \[InvisiblePostfixScriptBase]?
Related (possible dupe): mathematica.stackexchange.com/q/1/5 I'd say that they're mostly for typesetting purposes and for finer control of the placements and positioning of subscripts/superscripts. You might probably use one of these when you need a subscript/superscript that's not attached to any symbol.

comment Is it safe to change the value of $TimeZone?
Can't you put it in a Block? In any case, I don't see any side effects, other than some date conversions and W|A calls getting messed up.

comment Can I make a default for an optional argument the value of another argument?
@LeonidShifrin If we're going down that road, what makes you think Module has not been unprotected and redefined? :D Nevertheless, point taken. (I do agree with the readability in any editor part — a fact I began to appreciate only after using the WB)

comment Can I make a default for an optional argument the value of another argument?
I don't see how using formal symbols "pollutes" the thinking or solution... Is there some edge case where it might break?

You can dispense with the Module and simply write: g[x_, y_: 0, z_: \[FormalY]] := Block[{\[FormalY] = y}, {x, y, z}]. It makes for cleaner looking code in the FE :)
