So, it would mean that we want the attached pair of patches.

Testing appreciated, I would like to avoid going back and forth in master.

Note that a consequence of the visualization is that bookmarks bugs 
become more obvious. Simple example :

1. set a bookmark in a paragraph,
2. modify the paragraph,
3. undo
-> the bookmark disappears.

This is because the paragraph id dies in the operation. A fix is coming 
soon for this.

Of course, if the paragraph id is not found, the bookmark should instead 
be shown in the top level paragraph. I do not know yet how to do that, 
but it is doable.

So there are two solutions now:

1/ revert bookmark display now, implement it in 2.5.0dev and fix the 
issues that this reveals. I anticipate that most of the issues will be 
easy to solve.

2/ keep the inline version, and deal with the incoming bug reports, that 
will be about bugs which actually already existed.

Riki, Jürgen, What would you prefer?
