So I discussed this with seth a bit on irc and I think we come with a
good plan.

There are some problems using a separate window as main way to access
bookmarks (basically it requires too many clicks and extra window
management). We plan to work on it but we think it would be better to
wait post 2.4, for stability.
As temporary hack we would introduce a bookmarks menu. (This would solve
also some other problems I posted in my previous mail).

We think it's ok to flat down the hierarchy starting with 2.4 though.

For example:
Computers->GNOME-> will be translated to

The choice of a flat system is positive, it will be kept also with the
post 2.4 design improvements, so there are no reasons to not do it now.

(I can do this before feature freeze)
