comment Automatic text-wrapping in labels in `TimelinePlot`
Currently TimelinePlot is only useful for manually designed posters. Need a layout engine. I mentioned this to SW at the last conference. By analogy, think of label placement in GIS (eg Google Maps) and more generally graph layout. People spend entire careers working on those.

comment Get the last line from each of a large number of files, transform them, and write all results to a single new file
@WReach, nice. I'm interested in extending stream-based processing to read/write, say, selected columns or cell ranges to & from text tables and spreadsheets. But before potentially reinventing the wheel, any existing APIs available to do this?

comment How to indent/align Header 4
I'm trying to avoid that, as I have a stack this big on metamaterials to read. Do you have an example? Would it require defining all the headers' behaviors or only H4?

Is it possible to avoid creating .m versions of notebooks that are in active development? Currently I open notebook in front end and execute everything in it.
