The little dialog was still using sqlite3, while the dialog switched to QtSql.
I originally had removed "New bookmark" completely, but later I thought that it
might be very useful. So newBookmark() in the list was a compromise - you
could well restore the old behaviour.

Only with QGISDEBUG - but you're right.

Ok, with me. If you add item delegates you should also add some for the
coordinates. By default Qt creates spinboxes with two decimals - useless for
BTW now that the CRS is considered by the dialog, it must be shown.
Otherwise it might zoom to some spot in an unexpected CRS without
a chance to see why.
