Perfectly sensible, however not practical as the "users" include kids
from 7 years old. Telling them "what ever you do, don't use bookmarks"
when they've all been using them for the last 2 years just plain isn't
going to work, and getting out of it requires a reboot of the system.

Looks like I'll just have to hang off implementing 0.22 until there's
some way of stopping this issue.
