bug#12309: 24.2.50; Option `(bookmark-)version-control': Use :tag so doc

Subject: bug#12309: 24.2.50; Option `(bookmark-)version-control': Use :tag so doc string matches menu

The doc strings of these variables speak of values t, nil, `never', and
(for `bookmark-version-control) `nospecial'.
The Value Menu for `version-control' shows "Never", "If existing",
"Always".  At least you can see the correspondence, because the same
words are used - you can tell that "Always" corresponds to "always" in
the doc string, which corresponds to value `t'.
The Value Menu for `bookmark-version-control' shows "nil", "never",
"nospecial", and "Other".  It is "Other" that is problematic for a user
- it doesn't correspond to anything in the doc string (except by process
of elimination).
Please use :tag to make things clearer.  In particular, use something
besides "Other" (the default name) for `t' (i.e., for any other non-nil value
than `never' and `nospecial').
