Hi Nicolas,

Thanks!  I was not aware that ox-bibtex.el existed, this accomplishes
exactly the use case I had in mind.  I've just pushed up two very small
changes to ox-bibtex.

1. The cite link following function falls back to obe-goto-citation if
   ebib is not fbound, and

2. `org-bibtex-process-bib-files' is only called on HTML export, so
   bibtex2html is not a requirement of ox-bibtex if used for latex
   export only.
