(sorry Piotr i replied to you already)

Hmm, treeview for bookmarks ? That's a nice idea isn't it ? 

It could be a new thing, a treeview of the complete folder hierarchy which 
however does only display those items you explicitly bookmarked. 

Imagine there's a simple button which on click adds a bookmark of the actual 
position to that tree. It would not ask you anything, just add the folder name 
(or mark it or whatever).

What you can do is add bookmarks for your 'nervous knots' very fast. After 
starting it you would be done with the basic structure very fast.

The pro's compared to standard treeview: 

() Only presents important things, on one look

() rename a tree item (like a bookmark), maybe add a comment field 

() managing is in XML than on file but i see this as a pro.

the con's:

() no way to change the structure to something different, no more resembling 
the file system.
Well think about this. A file system uses to be sorted intelligently and, 
ideally, also intuitively.
At least your home folders should be.
So why putting up a different logical structure in bookmarks than on disk when 
you should implement that on folder level in the first instance ?

() What to do if you change the folder hierarchy. I guess none-working 
bookmarks should simply be removed. (In the long run, intelligent file 
operation trackers can be envisioned.) 

Fast-adding bookmarks basically is implemented in Nautilus or Konqueror, but 
without treeview.
Which would be exactly the missing detail which makes the whole thing useful.
