That sounds like a really good solution, I'll try and test it out in a
couple of days (although I'm sure John will get to it first).

This actually already exists - just select the documents you'd like to
export, then go to Library->"Export Bibtex", and at the bottom of the
dialogue you'll see a combobox called "Selection" where you can choose
to export all documents or just the selection.  I usually filter the
view and then select all and then do this export.
