Is it?  Then perhaps I don't understand what "this" is, because
support for keeping the markers' positions is implemented on the C
level, and every insertion/deletion primitive runs the low-level code
which implements that.  I wouldn't call changes in that area
"straightforward" at all.

Please also keep in mind that markers are the basis for other
important features, like overlays and conversion of character to byte
positions and vice versa.  We need to consider the implications on all
those features.
