* oc-biblatex too aggressive in replacing styles

Hi,

Thanks for providing ox-biblatex.

It works very well and has replaced my local hacks for LaTeX
bibliographies.

However, I think it is currently too aggressive in overwriting styles.

Could it perhaps accept any style that is given in
‘org-cite-biblatex-options’ / ‘org-latex-packages-alist’ and only
overwrite it if another style is explicitly specified in the file to be
exported?

A bit like how ox-koma-letter looks for in-buffer changed values.

Currently, the only way I have found that I can specify that I want to use
biblatex-chicago is by issuing

    #+cite_export: biblatex chicago-authordate

But this is a bit blunt as it overrules ‘org-cite-export-processors’ and
thus biblatex is used for e.g. text export (of course I can replicate
org-cite-export-processors with a macro that looks at the current export
backend).

(If you want I am happy to try to work on this)

Thanks,
Rasmus

Example:

    See [cite/t:@OrgCitations]

    #+bibliography: lit.bib

    # only way to "actuallyhicago:
    #+cite_export: biblatex chicago-authordate
    * settings :noexport:
    #+begin_src emacs-lisp
      (require 'oc-biblatex)
      ;; test 1:  style is gobbled 
      ;; (setq org-cite-biblatex-options "style=chicago-authordate, maxcitenames=2")
      ;; test 2:  style is gobbled
      ;; (setq org-latex-packages-alist '(("style=chicago-authordate, maxcitenames=2" "biblatex")))
      ;; test 3: biblatex and biblatex-chicago are both loaded
      ;; (setq org-latex-packages-alist '(("authordate" "biblatex-chicago")))
    #+end_src

I raised a similar question awhile back, and am not sure the best approach.

But to give some context:

The current styles in the core processors are designed for portability;
they are not natbib or biblatex or CSL styles, but org styles that can be
mapped to those targets in more-or-less consistent ways.

This is tricky to do, in part because of inconsistencies; in particular
between natbib and biblatex.

Which is to say, in some cases the style mappings might be enhanced or
modified.

But I agree there should be some kind to fallback, in particular for
biblatex, which has an insane amount of commands.

Here's Nicolas' response to my query, which I agree with, and which is
consistent I think with what you are suggesting.

Thanks a lot for pointing me to that thread!

Ah?

Isn't it the case already?

If you need chicago-authordate style globally, you can set
`org-cite-export-processors' instead, e.g., to

  ((t biblatex "chicago-authordate"))

You are responsible, however, for requiring appropriate packages in the
document header (with `org-latex-packages-alist', for example).

For me it is not. But maybe I used the latest release and not the latest git version.  Let me recheck and get pack.

I see. I had missed that you could supply a third argument, but it seems to work perfectly! Thanks! 
(And sorry about the noise.)

Maybe I will try to write a patch for the manual.

Kind regards,
Rasmus
