I should think more before pressing Send.
The storage core (libstorage) is just a simple api
(very similar to the ephy and the rhythmbox one) to 
insert and retrieve data from a database (PG atm). That's what 
I was talking about. Obviously my link to the storage page is totally 
confusing, because it talks of a lot of other things ...

Basically I think there are two approaches to share user data between apps
(bookmarks in this case). One is to have daemon in the middle,
the other is to have a multi threaded db. 
The second is what I meant with storage approach.
Both have pro/cons surely, but I dont think 2 is pie-in-the-sky.

For how much I like the storage long time goals I perfectly see there are
issues that should be solved in a shorter time frame, and I'm even trying
to put some work on them.
