emacspeak-bmk-mgr vanished?



Hi Raman,

Don't rush to restore it if I'm the only user! The bmk-mgr package is not
getting any active development and I suspect it won't be too long before it
suffers from bit rot. I can manage restoring it for my own use until I find the
time to convert to org (which I'm already using for other things, including the
org-capture functionality). 

I really just wanted to find out what others are using and to flag there is
still a reference to the emacspeak-bmk-mgr file int he emacspeak.el file, which
causes an error if you happen to load bmk-mgr. Removing this reference would
allow bmk-mgr to still be run without emacspeak support.

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a
touch of genius (and a lot of courage) to move in the opposite direction.
