[OS X TeX] Cite Bibliography script

Let me make a few comments.

First, if BibDesk is installed, then its "Service" offers already this 
functionality instantaneously (!). There are may other reasons why one 
should use BibDesk.

Secondly, if, for whatever reason, one would like to run the 
Applescript, then the following points should be observed:

1. Each file that uses bibtex contains a command like 
\bibliography{mrabbrev,publications}, where the last name is the name 
of the relevant .bib file. The best place to store the .bib file is 
~/texmf/bibtex and the script could be directed to this directory.

2. The script contains a lot of subroutines which should be saved in a 
compiled form and called upon if necessary. There is already a folder 
for subroutines ~/Library/TeXShop/Scripts.
