I think that putting a new topic or maybe add topic entry in the bookmarks 
menu might be a good idea. My main objection has always been that 
adding/removing topics should not be done from within the new bookmark 
dialog since it adds unneeded complexity to it. Your proposal should work 
well actually. Since the new bookmark dialog is not modal, a user could do 
bookmark->new topic, the new topic magically gets added to the existing new 
bookmark dialog and then the user can add that topic to the bookmark. Please 
file a bugzilla bug with this suggestion although i'm not sure if this could 
get into 1.0. (up to marco)
