I also use Jabref and have a very large bibliography that I would like to
be able to
draw on for other papers, and would think about using that large
(with enhancements) as my master bibliography.

But it seems that when you use the Jabref external link you have to give up
using the
Lyx-Citation dialog?  When you say "insertion in the text" do you mean the
LYX text?
