I assume this code is used for every entry of a comma-separated list
given to \cite?  So it would be save to add whitespace between such

If we stick with the original make-based build procedure the Makefile
file will have to be adapted to the new directory structure in the
repository.  But we could of course skip that and implement the
Lisp-based build routine right away.
