Here is the prototype of bookmark based snippet manager.

1. Set the region which you want to record as snippet
2. Do M-x snippet:region->bookmark
3. Do \C-x r l
4. Do [return] on the line where the snippet
5. Switch the buffer
6. \C-y

(require 'bookmark)
(defun snippet:region->bookmark ()
  (lexical-let ((snippet (buffer-substring (region-beginning) (region-end))))
    (let ((bookmark-make-record-function (lambda ()
                                           `((page    . ,snippet)
                                             (handler . 
      (bookmark-set (car (split-string snippet "[\n]"))))))
(defun snippet:bookmark->kill-ring (record)
  (kill-new (cdr (assoc 'page record))))
