Yes, for bibtex. But to clarify, Matt Price and I got on the subject of
using Zotero as both the source database and the reference-formatting
engine for exported documents, with Org in the middle.
Reftex can be used for that as well, e.g. by synching the Zotero db to a
bibtex file with Zotero db keys as citekeys. There are other options,
with different pros and cons. (And I'll start a thread on that soon as
my day job stops interfering with my night life again.)
