In all honesty I think that writing a bunch of scripts in a friendly language
(ie. not sh) and placing them in a directory in your path would be a better way
of doing this - for several reasons:

- They would be easier to read and come back to in future
- You can add comments, variable names etc.

And most importantly:

If you ever want to share these with someone else, they'll work in any version
of any terminal.  If you want to share these across machines that would be much
more straightforward than bookmarks assuming the scripts were placed on a
shared directory somewhere.
