Re: emacspeak-bmk-mgr vanished?

Hi Robert,

thanks, that is a very similar setup to what I have - I find it a bit more
'clunky' than bmk-mgr, especially with respect to managing large numbers of
bookmarks. I can customize it further and will be able to customize it to
better suit my needs, I just wanted to avoid having to do that right now. While
we can do almost anything with emacs, finding the time to write and maintain
custom extensions can be problematic. I also have to now convert my existing
bookmarks file to org format, which is straight-forward, but again, need to
find the time. 

For now, I've restored emacspeak-bmk-mgr as this will at least let me run
bmk-mgr and access my bookmarks. The rest will go into my growing org-mode todo
