I agree but I'm not sure if these should go all in the location entry
(I'd put 2 there). If they doesnt we need a way to specify which of them
does (hidden or not).

1 We dont have such a db. Assuming we still do not have a decent web
page I'm not sure how much this is realistic.
2 Having a small list of smartbookmarks built in has the advantage of
making it easier to find (not sure how many people will look in
bookmarks for a browser functionality) and to filter out "hackerish
smartbookmarks", that in a db used by the linux community, have a good
chance to be the major part.

I think having help directly in the web page (database or built in page)
is better in this particular case, because the links are part of the
page. Personally I'm unable think to a resonable explanation I could put
in the help.
