First of all, it's an optional entry so only exported if present.  What I did 
was consider which types of publications would tend to have a URL instead of 
other bibliographic information and only include for those where it would 
likely necessary.  For instance, journal articles will be given a DOI so a URL 
is less useful; technical reports, however, are likely to be hosted at an 
institution's web site so a URL is likely useful.

But I must admit that I didn't spend much time thinking about which ones should 
have it.  I didn't want all of them because I often store the URL for a journal 
article in the org file just for quick access but I do not want it exported to 
BiBTeX as it would be messy and superfluous when the paper were cited.

I'm glad the patch seemed straightforward!  Thank you.
