comment Latex Macros: Local Variables and Path Names
oh, sorry it should have read \inputdir{.}. If the script cannot handle this, then I think it is a very bad and much too restrictive macro!

Ok, for your usage, do \inputdir{sigsbee} and then \multiplot{2}{sigsbee/img1,sigsbee2/img2,sigsbee/img3,sigsbee2/img4} which I guess should work. The culprit really is multiplot.

comment Wrong pdf output size
If, when you zoom, you see the correct thing, then your problem will not lie in the viewer, it will lie in the hardware that represents the data. However, certain viewers allows to have their own precision for viewing compression, in Adobe Reader you can try and increase the precision in the Page Display preference tab.

Well your screen has pixels as well! :) If it looks correct when you zoom, then definitely it is correct.

comment Wrong pdf output size
Change units in your viewer to cm/mm, in that way you can be sure from the viewers perspective. Also, when doing implicit for loops on reals you come into some numerical problems of accuracy. First correcting your loop: {0.1,0.5,.9,...,199.9}, then you will find that the last column is placed here 19.69696mm whereas it should be 19.7mm exactly. Note that the last line will not be present! This is because TikZ does numerics in LaTeX and the accuracy is not that great, you should probably use the fpu library instead.

comment Latex Macros: Local Variables and Path Names
It is a bit unclear what multiplot actually does. If it is one of your macros you can edit it to split its arguments to have something executed in the middle. I think it this case you are better of by setting path to {} and then prepend the actual path to each image.

I can actually not remember, try and see if it works (but do not put \graphicspath inside the command), or read in the graphics manual. I have always put it in my preample, if it is just appending to an internal _non_-global macro, it should work, otherwise you need to do something else.

If those are regular png's (or any other image format inset by \includegraphics) just do: \graphicspath{{sigsbee}{sigsbee2}} and extend with as many paths as necessary. Note the extra braces and no comma separator. Then you should not need \inputdir.

comment Non-slanted (siunitx style) unit prefixes with pgfplots
Yes, but ultimately it requires a package for the upright greek. Forcing the user to load it is not the best way around. Agreed there should be a switch to handle the micro command in a generic way.

comment Non-slanted (siunitx style) unit prefixes with pgfplots
Correct! :) I just posted that :) However it is not a bug, if you do not use siunitx changing to \micro would not compile (try leaving out unit code/.code).

comment say something in parentheses
I think this is more a question of semantics than of LaTeX? I think this is appropriate either for the English site, or the Academia site. Once you know what is correct, then come ask specifically about such usages. :)

comment Drawing a 3D cylinder, and a circle shape on the x---y plane
I would probably make the xy plane a transparent light greyish colour, while making the circle that cut the plane thicker, however, "correct" 3D imaging needs tinkering, a lot. :) If you just want the full circle, just be sure you draw the things in the correct order, so draw the plane circle last.
