Well actually I think it would be great if the bookmarks were children
of the folder.  In other words if I have a documents folder and in that
I have a four or five folder deep structure I would be able to bookmark
any of those folders in my documents window.  This is the way I work and
would keep the number of icons down on the desktop which as I said
before, is often covered anyway.  In a way, the objects in the bookmarks
would still be "related" to the folder window.  You wouldn't be able to
bookmark parent items.

Just a thought.
