The thought had occurred to me since bibtex is the only database that 
latex can interact with. The downside is that hacking bibtex is 
impossible (as far as I am concerned) so producing bibstyles that 
either print the problem, or the solution, or both, would have to go 
into my todo list for the afterlife (and that list is getting full).

This seems to have the right elements I want. I'll need to digest your 
very detailed answer. Thanks.
