And we can share that format with Konqueror and others, using XBEL.
Galeon can import/export XBEL already, and switching to XBEL as the
native format wouldn't be too difficult.

We can add an attribute to the bookmarks (represented as a metadata node
in XBEL) to identify the program that added the bookmark (or the kind of
the bookmark: web, local, private... ) and let the user choose which
bookmarks does he want in each program.

I've been thinking for some time about rewriting the Galeon bookmarks
system (to my surprise, some people seem to like it), and doing it as a
shared lib (or bonobo component, with a control for the editor, etc).
This could be reused by Nautilus and the rest of gnome programs that
need bookmarks.
