After my own comprehensive research, this is what I have found :

you must NOT file a return for 2012 if your gross income from worldwide sources is under 9'750 USD (can range until 21'800 USD, depending on age, sex, marital status) annually. In conclusion, you are not even required to fill out a Federal tax form!

I am genuinely surprised none of our "competent" EFers has pointed this out before!
Yes, but you do have to send in an FBAR if you have, aggregate, more than $10,000 in any foreign financial accounts at any time during the year. Filling out a tax return is not relevant to what we're talking about.
