Hi Jambu,
This is a bit cryptic. It seems to me that it is relatively easy to 
change DB and tools. I currently keep all my references in a bibtex DB, 
but there are plenty of conversion tools. The real problem is finding 
something that works.

I still find Org mode a bit frustrating in this context. In the above 
quote I say "something like \cite", but I don't really care what the 
entry looks like as long as it can retrieve information from a DB and 
construct the correct text reference and the correct bibliography entry 
across all exports.

Is there such a DB and tool?
