Got it.  Thanks.

Is it possible to expand links, too?  If I have
#+CAPTION: Data from [[textcite:ladefoged08:_variab_hawaii][;]].
I get
\caption{Data from [[textcite:ladefoged08:_variab_hawaii][;]].}

My textcite link type is here:

#+name: define-biblatex-textcite-link
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :results silent :exports none
   "textcite" 'ebib
   (lambda (path desc format)
      ((eq format 'html)
       (format "(<cite>%s</cite>)" path))
      ((eq format 'latex)
       (if (or (not desc) (equal 0 (search "textcite:" desc)))
           (format "\\textcite{%s}" path)
         (format "\\textcite[%s][%s]{%s}"
                 (cadr (split-string desc ";"))
                 (car (split-string desc ";"))  path))))))

Terrific.  Thanks!
