Undo in this case is less intuitive than when editing text. I think the
right moment to decide overwriting is when creating the bookmark. So
maybe we could provide a variable to control this confirmation
behaviour? But I agree with Karl the default should provide

BTW, I use bookmark as some sort of persistent registers that I can make
use another day another place. I rsync bookmarks to a few machines so
bookmark-save-flag is 1 to make sure the db is always fully in disk.
