Understandable. The logical solution is to always include the issue  
number, if available. Then, you can use it when necessary and ignore  
it when redundant.  My gripe was with the requirement that issue  
numbers should be /removed/ if they are not absolutely necessary.  
That's the problem that forces Matthew to maintain two bib files.
