[OS X TeX] BibTeX macro poll

In my main .bib file, I use the full syntax around a dozen times, 
mostly for journal dates, e.g., "month = jan # {--} # apr".

I'm not sure what you mean by passing complicated macros through 
unaltered.  Could you explain?

Here's a suggestion for the GUI.  Each field (author, title, etc.) of 
an entry would have one of two text formats.  The default format would 
be the current one, no macros.  Perhaps as a menu option, or by 
selecting a checkmark, you could use a 'raw source' format, where 
everything you type would be exactly as it appears after the "=" in the 
.bib file.  To indicate that the format is raw source, the text would 
be a different color than the standard black.
