I take it you're referring to this?:

I think that's a little different from what I mean - that (as far as I
can tell) is a way for pamphlet files to reference other pamphlet
files.  That's good but not what I have in mind - I'm actually
referencing books and papers from external sources, more like a
research paper.  I guess you could say I'm trying to more or less make
this a paper which also happens to be an Axiom pamphlet and
implementation of the ideas under discussion, sort of like your
"literate journal" idea.  (I know that the idea there is mainly for the
research and implementation of new mathematical ideas, but I like the
format and it helps to organize my thinking.)  So this I guess would be
a UnitsandDimensions.bib file to go along with
UnitsandDimensions.pamphlet.  I doubt it would make sense to include it
in a global bib file, and if Axiom begins incorporating lots of papers
trying to maintain one huge bib file could get pretty hairy.

I think they hyperref package is pretty standard nowadays, for what
that's worth.  Or did you mean dependency pain in pamphlets referring
to each other?

pdf at least should be no problem - I'm generating pdf now without too
much issue (a few odd warnings I don't really understand, but the
resulting pdf looks fine and seems to have working hyperlinks.)
