I’m starting to learn about org’s new capabilities for citations and bibliographies.  Exciting, and great work!

Two suggestions/requests:

1. `org-cite-list-bibliography-files' returns the bibliographies defined locally and the globally defined bibliographies together.  I propose to only list the local bibliographies, if defined, and to return the global bibliographies otherwise.  I think the user needs a way to override the global setting if necessary.  For example, when I work on a manuscript, I’d like to use that manuscript’s dedicated bibliography, but ignore my global bibliography.  It’s very common to work with dedicated bibliographies IME, and the UI of oc-basic doesn’t show from which bibliography an entry is coming.  So there’s no way to reliably select entries from just the dedicated/local bibliography.

2. The oc-basic processor makes citations look like clickable links (blue, underlined, mouse pointer changes to finger), but when I click on them, nothing happens.  I can only follow a references via `org-open-at-point'.  It would be good to make citations clickable.  I also suggest allowing users to follow links via C-c C-c which currently doesn’t do anything on citations.  The other obvious action that C-c C-c could trigger would be `org-cite-insert'.  Not sure what’s better.
