Hey, Filippo.  I just gave cb2bib a try, but I found the UI to be a bit
strange.  I couldn't figure out how to make it give me just a list of
all references, although there must be a way.

Thanks, Carsten!  Tellico looks pretty nice.  It's pdf import is one of
the better I've seen.  It pulls full abstract, which are then available
for searching, which is great.

The only problem is that I can't figure out how to make it do a bulk
import of a large number of pdfs, which means I'm having to import each
one individually, which is a drag.
