After a little more thinking I'm not sure whether "pass" is worth it. It can 
solve the problem of determining whether a node was deleted in one bookmark 
file or added in the other, but there are various other issues it doesn't 
solve, such as moves. All in all I'm not sure anymore whether a feature that 
solves only 90% of the cases is really worth it...
