Noted.  But we are not going to change the default behavior in
incompatible ways on my watch, sorry.

If someone had suggested this when I was first implementing the Bookmark Menu, I think I would have incorporated the suggestion then and just had this behavior from the beginning.

That ship has sailed; we cannot change the past. The sheer amount of time that the current behavior was the default gives weight to it that
cannot be countermanded by reasoning.

The fact that it's a change in interactive behavior now is minor
compared to the benefit.

I understand that this is your opinion, but I've heard enough
complaints from veteran users about annoying behavior changes forced upon them (and had my own share of such annoyances) that I'm firmly
against making such changes opt-out.

Great -- that's a clear decision backed up by a perfectly reasonably argument, thank you. (I don't even disagree very strongly; there are good arguments both ways on this one.)

So, I'll change the patch so it defaults to no confirmation, and add an etc/NEWS entry, and then we can see how people like it. Revised patch coming soon.

Best regards,
