I'm very much in favor of this, but this requires either parsing the
source code (in case of a in-document bibliography) or the support
(=parsing and processing) of external .bib files. Personally, I'd like
to see a few other changes to the sources before this can be implemented
properly, but it's definitely on my personal wish-list :).
