Thanks! I found the relevant section in reftex-do-citation:

      (let ((concat-keys (mapconcat 'car selected-entries ",")))

and switched it to:

      (let ((concat-keys (mapconcat 'car selected-entries ", ")))

I put the modified function in scratch and c-x c-e to run it, and now
the function works as I want. How do I get the modifed code to run
automatically? I tried putting it in .emacs but that doesn't work.
