comment Python Toolbox (.pyt) Tool Output Layer Name
Seems to me the best solution is to set up an output GPLayer as a derived parameter, this gives you full control of the layer. But this doesn't really solve the problem as I suspect your feature class and layer outputs will both be added to the TOC.

comment Efficient way to use a CSV to Define a Feature Class
Just be clear, the layer's geodata are not in memory, just validated informatino about the layer. If you create a feature layer or table view and pass that to a tool, the tool does not have to validate the input (ie make sure it exists, get the field list and other properties - the layer has all this "metadata" in memory already).

comment Changing default parser in ArcGIS Field Calculator to Python?
Yes, definitely VB is gone in AGP -- since VB isn't supported in 64 bit arcpy -- and ArcGIS Pro is native 64 bit!!

comment Will ArcGIS 10 support Python 2.7 or Python 3.1?
ArcGIS 10.2.2 is still at Python 2.7.x. However the new ArcGIS Pro desktop application (to be released in mid-2014) uses Python 3.4 - and uses the same GP environment (toolboxes) as Desktop 10x. So ArcGIS scripters should work on their skills writing code that is 2.7/3.4 compatible -- which BTW isn't that difficult.

comment ArcGIS 10.0/arcpy: How to create a polygon geometry from inner and outer ring point arrays?
I've been trying writing arcpy.Point(0,0) in the middle of the array and it does not work for me even thought I've been getting advice to use it. I end up with a 0,0 point in the middle of the array, spiking my polygons with a real 0.0 point included. Would love to see a code example, celticflute!
