You and Marco are capable enough to make a bookmark feature, but in
the past years neither of you has made anything like it.  So I doubt
that you really have any need for bookmarks.

I proposed the (single) anchoring mechanism because I observed what
I actually do now and then.

But as we can't agree on the mechanism, I'll let it be.  I'll carry
a local patch and see if I will actually start to use the anchor.
Updated patch is coming up.

I was talking about anchoring there, not about bookmarks.  So I was
talking about my proposed mechanism.  If you call an anchor a bookmark
too, or bookmarking anchoring, it gets confusing.
