Oh, and:

ppower4 (for incremental build of pages in presentations)

{X,}emacs: preview-mode (for wysiwyg formulae)
(never really got it to work for me in xemacs)

from \usepackage{pdfscreen}, you can launch external programs via href
links (which I am going to do for launching an interactive movie:
google for latex with ~/.mailcap and ~/.mime.types)

There was one other item here I wanted to include, but have forgotten...
