Yep, I'll be waiting for some black magic ;-)

Works like a charm! Thanks very much for the workaround ... I've  
adapted it slightly so that the optional argument is treated as  
generic text ... in order to use \cite[], \footnote{\cite[]} or  
whatever else I need.

Could this optional argument perhaps be integrated directly in the  
usual \startquotation command some day? I guess a lot of people will  
need this ... every quotation calls for a proper reference ;-)
