Thanks. I've looked at several potential command line alternatives but
they're apparently no longer supported or have required pieces I cannot
find. Sigh.

I'll add BBT to Zotero and read about the differences between bibtex and
biblatex; perhaps it is time to migrate to the latter.

I'm a touch-typist and much prefer to work using only the keypad. All my
editors are configured to use the emacs shortcuts so JabRef losing that
capability is a big deal for me.

Carpe weekend,
