Dictating what other researchers write or cite in their
own publications seems like an indirect form of wanting
to be "paid" (by means of recognition that would not 
otherwise have been given).  Doesn't the contributor of
the software believe that the work is strong enough to
stand on its own merits?  It's the job of referees to
point out when authors have failed to cite the most relevant
work.  Why tamper with the normal process?
