i don't think it makes too much sense. as far as i see, it is not
persistant. and mc does not have a track record of "don't ask again"
checkboxes anyway, afair.
you can make it consistent with non-empty directory deletion by making
it possible to select multiple entries and have an "all" button in the
confirmation dialog. but that seems to be major overkill to me.
so if you really feel that the confirmation is so annoying (ermm, how
often do you delete bookmarks?), add a separate option to the
confirmations dialog (name it generically, like "confirm low-value
delete" or something, to avoid adding more options of this type).
