Ok, I understand. We are only interesting about seeing a specific 
bibliographic situation in this user case.  (I'm used to bibliographies 
rather than single citations. In fact, when reading scientific articles I 
often read the bibiliography separately, just to see what they were 
citing. That's just like checking a list of "related links" on a web 

Here's how I think the information in your example woul be used:

* bibliography database = $Name, here "Group.BibTeXPage"
* citation key = here "id"
* action = "cite", makes the bibliography database page only display the 
  citation(s) that corresponds to the key "id".

When the page is rendered, the action=cite makes pmwiki scan the page for 
bibliographic information and only show the entry matching 'ref'.

Did I get it right, or are you perhaps assuming that the database is 
stored somewhere else?
