Tools to help authors take better advantage of BibTeX data,
especially when working in collaboration.  Instead of using BibTeX
'keys', which are chosen arbitrarily and idiosyncratically, nbibtex
builds a bibliography by searching the actual contents of citations.
It can be used as a drop-in, compatible replacement for bibtex.
