I actually adapted and integrated this feature into Achim's -- nice -- 
function (posted on r-help).
Romain included it a couple of weeks ago into the bibtex package as 
function write.bib, and submitted the update to CRAN, but some NOTEs in 
the check delayed its availability on CRAN.
You can still install and try out the new version with:
install.packages("bibtex", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")

Keys for multiple citations are generated as "<pkgname>%i", which might 
not be ideal, but works ok though. It might be better not number the 
first (main) citation. Romain, I think I will submit a patch for this.
Hope this helps.
