I think I decided on my own ;) 
I will take the way using the aux-files I guess. This will give me the
advantage to have some more information (e.g. chapter/section, page) as
well as a nice form without parsing the whole document again and again
which will take some time in case of huge document. Now I only
need somebody who will implement this ;)
