That will be pretty annoying for BibDesk usage, though, since we use  
"URL" as the default URL field.  If you do that, AppleScript from  
within BibDesk would be more reliable than a global find/replace in a  
text editor.

In this case, I'd edit the apsrev.bst file to suppress printing the  
URL (or to use a bogus field for the URL); searching for "url" in the  
bst file should show you the relevant location.
