OK, now I have another (not very important) problem.  With
bookmark-automatically-show-annotations set to t, I get a buffer with
the annotation when I jump to a bookmark.  However, it is read-only and
basically unusable for e.g. editing the annotation.  Is this intended

Now I know.  There was seemingly some confusion about loading.  I guess
I should have restarted my Emacs, since some parts of the bookmarking
code seemed to come from the vanilla Emacs parts.
