So, in the use of bibliographies, I have not understood how to control
In the bibl-xxx.tex files, it is defined as

In bibl-bib.mkiv, one has

I guess that
in my source would turn off the appended letters, but this is not
correct. I have tried many variants (\setuppublications, \setupbibtex).
What am I misunderstanding? Or is this a bug?
maybeyear is one of the areas that need fixing. The simple on/off
mechanism is not sufficient, because the behavior needs to be more complex:
1. If the citation style does not use the year as a key, do not append
2. If the citation style uses year as key and only one publication/year
of an author is quoted and listed (even if there are several in the bib
file) do not append letter.
3. Append letter if citation style uses year AND more than one
publication/year for given author is quoted and listed.
I assume that in order for this to work, Hans will have to rewrite the
code which produces the .bbl file from the bib. Right now, AFAICS, the
.bbl contains the entire .bib database. It should only contain the
entries which are cited.
Alan, does that make sense to you?
