Oh, I was pretty sure that org-footnote.el is only a wrapper around the
original footnote.el that comes with emacs, but looking at the code it
seems to be a completely separate facility.

It says to have "better support for resuming editing" than footnote.el
but be less configurable.  Can someone enlighten my what is meant with
that better support for resuming editing?  I mean, footnote.el already
provides automatic renumbering which is the only special feature I can
imagine to be of great use when resuming to edit a footnoted document...
