Would you want this to replace the auto-bookmarking so the only bookmarks
are those you set, or add yours in addition to some defined set of auto
marks, or something else?

BTW, note that in Wing 3.1 auto-bookmarking should handled mini search
much better.  I've been trying to improve that incrementally so feedback
on what should still be changed would be welcome.
