Yes, at the moment bookmarks are more of a keyboard driven thing.  
We could certainly add GUI elements/support here, including 
icons, line highlight, and tooltips.

My thought is some way to set and get at bookmarks with the mouse 
more quickly is the most important thing.  For the popup menu, 
are you asking just for a list of bookmarks within the file you 
click on or all bookmarks?
