You already can, even with older versions of Epiphany (without my
patches). Add the bookmark to the bookmarks bar, and then use the normal
toolbar editor to drag-and-drop from the bookmarks bar to the toolbar.

Good point about discoverability, but I'm not so sure it needs to be
done that way. I'd like to avoid something called the "Bookmarks Bar"
because, as you now know, the "Bookmarks Bar" isn't the only place you
can put bookmarks. :)

I'll clean it up a little tonight (Australian time) then send it.
There's some minor things I want to fix (a speed improvement to the
algorithm which builds the menu structure, and completing the removal of
the bookmarks bar).

See ya,
