Unfortunately, I haven't had the time yet to update Ebib for the new
functionality. Ebib needs to implement a follow processor so that
`org-open-at-point` takes you to the entry in Ebib.

That's because when you start Ebib with `M-x ebib` (or a key bound to that
function, of course), it checks to see if point is at something that looks like
a key and tries to find a corresponding entry in the current database. That
functionality is not customisable and not very well implemented, so it doesn't
always work. (Also, if point is at the `cite` prefix, it doesn't work.)
