I added a `slow' tag to the desktop record (not to the bookmark record yet)
as the first step.

Unifying desktop.el and bookmark.el has more problems:

1. Backward compatibility, i.e. existing desktop files should still load
fine even when newer desktop files will contain bookmark records.

2. Data duplication: the bookmark record contains `position' and
the desktop record has the same info for `point'.  (I suppose
the bookmark record should go to the 8-th element of the desktop data,
i.e. to the `desktop-save-buffer' element).
