Sounds interesting. The interesting part is that the konsole bookmark
allows you to open an arbitrary program at a selected bookmarked directory.

Currently I am finishing the "dotdesktop" plugin for Rodent, which
allows you to navigate through categories of installed applications and
launch them (either with doubleclick or drag and drop). Dotdesktop files
are also known as "launchers" in Nautilus and allow the construction and
automatic updates of the program launcher menus.

Since Rodent plugins may override filemanager behaviour, I have to give
it some thought so that:
 1- Functionality is greater than that provided by konsole
 2- The concept is easy to grasp, apply and remember
