This would be nice.  Then we could link it to some folder, say,
~/.xfce/dump/ and just create symlinks in that folder that automagically
show up on the panel, in the desktop menu, etc.

Hmm... troubling.  I don't use either (Opera), so perhaps that should be
a user's responsibility to extract any pertinent info from pertinent
bookmark files, i.e. the user and his scripting abilities. :D

Of course, that's why I don't have one of those yet.... ;)
