Upcoming Tuesday two weeks have passed since the move into kdereview.
Thanks to Albert, Burkhard and Laurent some i18n problems have been fixed. Did 
anyone else have the time to give this plasmoid a small test?
The codebase is rather small and simple, as is the functionality, so reviewing 
should be quickly done, I hope :)

Here your quick guide to compile it:
svn co -N
svn up plasma/applets -N
svn up plasma/applets/bookmarks
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ../plasma
(sudo) make install

Also please think about some answers to the "Open Questions" as written above.
