I have noticed that bibtex-mode is not exactly friendly for using as a
library. It is effectively a set of functions to leave point at the
element one asks for. My code accepted that and effectively moved
point around in the .bib file's buffer each time a citation was

I have dedicated today's morning into replacing the calls to
bibtex-mode's functions and my own functions with your library
parsebib. I have cleaned up some other things (e.g. replaced that
ZITBIB line with a buffer-local variable). Now it is even more
untested, but anyway, here is it again, in a new branch:


Much smoother now. And it has the charme that anything that works with
