Not that I am able to help you very much further, but I am right now in a 
similar situation. I am in the 
process of setting up a db with wikindx http://wikindx.sf.net/ The main 
developer is obviously not working 
with any TeX flavour, but there is some Bibtex im-/export (which also concerns 
only .bib files) that I am 
ATM fiddling with, but I thought I might add that one to the list of databases 
you mentioned.
