I just switched from natbib to biber + biblatex, and the closest bibliography style to my preferred style is "ieee" (by Joseph Wright). I am using it with the citation style "authoryear". This makes the numbers in the bibliography useless; how do I remove them?

Did you consider the ieee-alphabetic style? – Joseph Wright Jun 27 '12 at 8:12
@JosephWright: I just tried that, but it adds [AuthYear] marks in the bibliography. Since I'm using the citation style author-year, I probably don't need those. Essentially, I want "ieeetrann" from natbib. Is there an easy way to get that? – Neil G Jun 27 '12 at 8:16

I can't test it right now, but it should be possible to load biblatex with the options citestyle=authoryear,bibstyle=ieee and then to add authoryear's bibenvironment definition to the preamble:
