I admit I also considered a wrapper but with a different functionality:
Simply check whether --citation was used before and if not do so.

I did not implemented this since from a user point of view the visible
effect is the same as the patch and the upstream author is probably
similarly (un)happy about it as the patch.

Kind regards
