no, <em>no</em>, <strong><em>NO!</em></strong>

pop up windows are extremely annoying to many speech-users and low-vision
users of screen-magnification...  one of the major requests of blind and
vi individuals who ask me to reformat poorly encoded/designed forms is to
get rid of the damn scrolling lists...  therefore, when it comes to
something as essential as multiple bookmarks it is essential that it be
kept simple, plain, and painless...

why not use shift-V?  it has the advantage of already being identified
with the bookmark file (as in go-to-bookmark)

so why not define shift-V as go-to-list-of-bookmark-files?
