BTW, I think the solution should likely not be connected to "code" in
any way.  Fundamentally, the same problem can appear where you're
reviewing a text document (tho it's admittedly less common).

So, all that's needed, I think, is some way to be able to maintain
a stack/tree of annotated bookmarks, with a command to "add an element"
which can be used from any buffer, and then some way to view the tree
and modify it.

Most likely, all it takes is a command which adds an entry to some
"central" Org file (probably a TODO entry) and another to quickly
display that Org file.
