In Icicles, anytime you use a file-access command such as `C-x C-f' you can
access file bookmarks by using `C-x m' in the minibuffer.

The completion candidates are only the file bookmarks (not Info, desktop, Gnus,
Man, W3M, etc. bookmarks). You can access any number of files through their
bookmarks in a single `C-x C-f' command, because it is a multi-command.

Similarly, you can access Dired bookmarks whenever you use `C-x d', buffer
bookmarks when you use `C-x b', Info bookmarks when you use `g' (goto-node) in
Info, etc.

You also need Bookmark+ to use this Icicles feature.
