It shows bookmarks for all tracks in the directory, because the bookmarks
are created for the implicit playlist for that directory.

While the change works well for that use case, I'm not sure if the change
is right for all use cases. If you have a directory bookmark for an album
or a book (with lots of small files), then only listing the bookmarks for
the current file would be a bit limiting, perhaps even confusing.

Personally, I wouldn't call changing the bookmark screen like that (if I
understood the change correctly) less controversial than adding a new menu
entry (or setting). :)
