Hi Chris,

Have you think of using the agenda views? In four keystrokes, you're
there with the best signal to noise ratio:

- `C-c a' (or M-x org-agenda)
- `<'     (to restrict the agenda view to the current buffer)
- `m'     (for tags, property and todo keywords)
- `abc'   (for tag :abc:), or (`YEAR'=2010 for PROPERTY :YEAR: equal 
           to 2010, etc).



PS: +1 for the excellent org-bibtex functionality !
