I've been working in my minimal spare time on a Cocoa app for managing
bibliography files.  I don't imagine app integration on the scale of endnote,
but Services might be a useful way to get things moving around.

The main thing I'm hung up on is reliably parsing the BiBTeX file format.  If
anyone has any references, documentation or example code that might help, then
I'd appreciate if you would pass them on.
