Thanks for those links, very helpful!

I am writing this article for PracTeX, so I probably can't create my  
own custom bst (or perhaps I can? not sure, couldn't really find any  
rules online), otherwise your package sounds perfect. I would guess  
though that PracTeX might perhaps have some standard way for dealing  
with this, so for now I opted for using the @misc type and the natbib  
styles, which print the word "URL" among other things, kind of  
irritating but works for now.
