I don't personally use you bookmarks for local directories, but some users 
do. My point is that instead of having bookmarks lets just have a common 
folder for favorite stuff, network folders etc. Other cool stuff we could do 
is save the search results in a folder format once we add search back to 
nautilus in the future. 

But yeah i agree with you bookmarks as implemented in nautilus are pretty 
lame and a mac os style favorites directory makes a lot more sense for a file 
manager/shell app imho.
