Hello John,

I have been able to hack something combining org-capture and the utility
functions you mention that implements the workflow I described.

There is only one issue: doi-utils-insert-bibtex-entry-from-doi contains
a (save-buffer) call that does not play nicely when I call it on a
temporary buffer. Why is the (save-buffer) there?
doi-utils-insert-bibtex-entry-from-doi looks like an utility function,
thus I think it should not try to save the current buffer. What do you

Thank you.
