How does one get BibTeX entries for RFCs? do I need to manually add entries for each RFC I cite? What do you use?

Since there are many automatically generated bib files you don't have to manually add them, and it shows how everyone else does it.

As a side note, its a simple matter to define a new driver with biblatex. Using \DeclareBibliographyDriver{rfc}{...} and use \DeclareFieldFormat[rfc]{...}{...} if you want the field printed differently from the rest of the entry types. (I don't have any experience referencing RFCs, so @misc might fit well).
