John MacFarlane, the developper of Pandoc, has released a new Citeproc 
that generates citations and bibliographies using CSL style files (CSL= 
citation style language). While it is written in Haskell and while it's 
primarily intended for use with Pandoc, it can also be used in other 
contexts. Provided with a JSON encoded list of references via stdin, it 
can produce formatted output.

I know that ConTeXt has its own infrastructure to format bibliographies 
and citations, but, given the enormous amount of available styles in 
CSL, I nevertheless think that this could be a worthwile addition. What 
would be necessary to make such a toll usable with ConTeXt? How 
complicated would that be?
