Thank you both for your input.

The #12915 bug report was quite a read.

There seem to be one consensus and one point of disagreement:

- consensus: the bug report calls for a general mechanism, as the same
  problem hit other commands;

- disagreement: such a general mechanism should be activated for all
  commands that find a file or only for specific commands (e.g. only
  interactive commands, [your rule here], or even no rule at all--as
  Drew suggests.)

I'm on Drew side here, I think a one-by-one approach is better,
whether there is a general mechanism or not (yet).

Since there is no strong objection for fixing the bookmark-jump case,
and since it's trivial to migrate this fix to a general solution when
we'll have one, I'm willing to apply the fix if no-one objects in a
week.
