That's something that bothers me about key based configuration systems... what 
happens if I remove org.freedesktop.bookmarks.web.1 ? Do my bookmarks then 
start at 2? Are 1 and 2 some sort of sequence numbers, or should they be seen 
as unique identifiers? Should the config system have a function for "give me 
a new id that isn't used yet" ?
