Thank you for the pointer to the options!

- “otherstext” works, yay! (when inserted after “\usebtxdefinitions[apa]”)
- “etallimit” (not “etaldisplay”) is the option for the max number of
authors before they’re replaced by “et al”. (“etaldisplay” controls how
many authors go before “et al” if the list is truncated)

I think I’ll add a more complete example to the wiki, all of this is pretty
complex due to being sensitive to order and overrides and so on.

Best, Philipp
