I agree with this - it essentially takes us back to the behaviour of
galeon where you put the bookmarks you wanted into a particular folder,
and made the folder into a toolbar. That worked well. All we have to do
in epiphany is s/folder/topic and we have a good working solution (That
incidentally is better than galeon's since we can have bookmarks in
multiple topics whereas you can't have bookmarks in multiple folders in
galeon [Apart from by using aliases which really is overkill IMHO)

However, so far I've only seen reference to "a bm toolbar" rather than
"your bm toolbars". I'd like to see the ability to edit a topic and pick
"Display as toolbar" and get a whole new toolbar appear. I don't think
restricting things to 1 toolbar is necessary ..
