Not so much showing the Konqueror bookmarks, but bookmarks *into* the file 
system, especially on remote shares, make an enormous amount of sense to me.

whoever made them, or sometimes both (I sometimes find things that were meant 
to be short lived, but were so randomly named, they're still there 5 years 

You better believe I bookmark them. I'd never find them again otherwise.  

I presume I am not the only person doomed to suffer a fate of working with 
insane people who name things strangely and have enormous file servers and so 
are never motivated to clean things up.  Which leads me to believe that 
anyone dealing with very long paths on very big file servers, will find 
bookmarks useful for things that you have to look at reasonable often, or at
