[texhax] natbib: multiple citations, one optional argument

i have a weird citation issue that doesn't seem to be
documented in the natbib docs.

i am trying to cite two references using the
\cite{ref29,ref33} form. one of the references is a
conference paper specifically on the topic in
question, but the other is a textbook that has a
one-page table i need to cite. in other words, it's
specific enough that i need to cite the specific page,
not just the whole book.

ideally, the reference would render in LaTeX as [29;
33, p. 659], but the form \cite[p. 659]{ref29,ref33}
doesn't handle this correctly -- instead it spits out
[29, 33, p. 659].

can anyone suggest a simple way to do this?
