Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
alphabib is a little Bash script allowing addition of alphabetical headers 
into BibTEX bibliographies. This may be usefull with large bibliographies 
so that to find entries quickly. It takes a bibliography file produced by 
BibTEX (file with extension '.bbl') as an input, and creates a new file 
with incorporated alphabetical headers. Those headers break the bibliography 
into bibliographic entry sets having the same initial. Each set is entitled 
with a header consisting of the initial letter corresponding to entries 
composing it. Note that this script is mostly intended for use with 
"alpha-like" BibTEX styles (e.g. alpha.bst).
