Wow, that is impressive.  I have one problem though: how to
create/edit/view annotations for bookmarks /without/ using the bookmark
list?  I.e., for the bookmark at point or something?

Also, how to set (in init.el) the default way for highlighting
bookmarks?  I'd prefer the "right fringe" style and not the "right
fringe + line" one.

Also, I've set bmkp-crosshairs-flag to t, but cannot see the
crosshairs.  (I have the necessary libraries installed).  This is
probably too vague anyway, I'll try to look into this problem myself.
