I had to write a research paper conforming to the MLA (Modern Language
Association) style, especially for references. Basically, I could make change to
references list very easily just by modifying the @DocumentSetup in

However, I had a problem doing it right with citations.
For an @Cite{}, we should get something like (AuthorLastName, Page#). The 
problem is
that the author's last, first, and middle name are not differentiated by Lout,
and the user's guide says that the set of options of @Reference is fixed
(section 5.6). But why can't we modify the definition of @Reference in
include/dsf ? And how could we add more fields (@AuthorLast, @AuthorFirst,
...) to @Reference ?
