Well, that's basically what I did. :-) I did look at `bibtex.el` at the time I
started Ebib, but it didn't seem to be intended as a library. Some functions
would only return the beginning and the end of an entry or field, not its
contents, so I figured, if I need to do the content extraction myself anyway, I
might as well do all the parsing myself.

The parsing code was only spun off into a separate library later, when Titus von
der Malsburg started his `helm-bibtex`. (It originally had Ebib as a dependency,
which, of course, is a bit weird. :-)
