Aloha Joost,

Following some pointers from Eric and Bruce I have this in my
configuration and it seems to work fine, though I haven't had a chance
to use it very much.

  ;; Citations
  (defun tsd/choose-file (candidates)
    (org-completing-read "Choose file: " candidates))

  (defun tsd/ebib-follow (datum _)
    "Follow citation or citation reference DATUM. When DATUM is a
citation reference, open ebib to the entry referencing the
citation key."
    (let* ((key
            (if (eq 'citation-reference (org-element-type datum))
                (org-element-property :key datum)
              (user-error "Not a citation reference")))
           (files (org-cite-list-bibliography-files))
           (file (if (> (length files) 1)
                     (tsd/choose-file files)
                   (nth 0 files))))
      (ebib file key)))
  (require 'oc-biblatex)
  (require 'oc-csl)
  (org-cite-register-processor 'ebib
      :follow #'tsd/ebib-follow)
  (setq org-cite-follow-processor 'ebib)

Also, it was easy to configure ebib to insert citations with the
org-cite syntax.

All the best,
