I've wanted the functionality from FS#6272 committed for a while
(autocreate bookmarks only when the bookmark file already exists), but
am not happy with the UI as it stands (it simply makes the set of
options even more complex). Perhaps if this UI were reworked somewhat,
it would be easier to understand even with added options?
