And I don't think that's a reasonable expectation for Drew to have --
there's no requirement for people working on bookmark.el to look at the
bookmark+.el code.

Matthew's code looks good to me, and seems like a real improvement to
bookmark.el, but I looked at the copyright assignment papers, and
apparently Matthew's only assigned copyright for wget, and not for
Emacs?  Or am I misreading the file?
