comment Temporarily changing catcode of %
Guys: I really appreciate you brainstorming alternative solutions (and do keep them coming, since I know I have not thought of everything). But the point of this question is really simply: is there something wrong with the code I posted above, and is there someway to write it in a better way?

@Andrew: the filter depends on external information; there's no way I can code that in TeX short of calling write18, which at the moment is not possible.

comment Temporarily changing catcode of %
@ChrisH for external reasons neither of those are viable. (The full reasons are too long to explain, but let's just say that write18 is a security risk, and if I cannot count on the filter being run [which will moot the entire problem], I cannot count on the sed script being run either.)

comment How to cite an article from Arxiv using bibtex
@ErelSegalHalevi: there is no "should", since I don't think it is standardized. But I generally just put the arXiv id such as arXiv:gr-qc/XXXXXXX or arXiv:XXXX.XXXX Remember, absent an actual style guide from a journal, the main goal of the bibliography is to make the references findable by readers. The arXiv id (properly formatted) is sufficient to uniquely identify a pre-print, so it is generally good enough.

revised bibliography in Beamer
The accepted answer is specific to BibTeX, therefore it is reasonable to assume that the OP was using bibtex in this question.
