I wonder if it would be possible to add the ability to customize the
veryshorttitle field when automatically generating BibTeX keys, so that it ignores specific words besides a, an, the, and so on.

For example, I have a lot of Spanish language references in my database, many of which start with words like el, la, los, etc. My preferred key pattern is [auth][shortyear][veryshorttitle] but a key of martinez08la is not very descriptive, and if there happens to be more than one in a given year then martinez08laa and martinez08lab becomes a bit confusing.
