Page range dashes in BibTeX export

I'm running into an issue for some of my references when exporting them to BibTeX: for page ranges containing an en dash, the dash may be converted to \textendash (when exporting with an ASCII character encoding) or the Unicode en dash character (when exporting with a UTF-8 encoding). I think an en dash in the Pages field should always be converted to -- for BibTeX. Although \textendash renders properly, the BibTeX style I'm using only recognizes -- as denoting a range; a different representation causes it to print "page" instead of "pages".

I haven't tried it, but my guess is that a similar issue arises when the em dash is used for open-ended page ranges, and that they should be converted to ---.
