It is convenient to use mark-ring to retrieve different places in a
Using the global-mark-ring is a little bit more inconvenient because
once it have recorded a position in a buffer, it doesn't update this
position if user set the mark in another place in this buffer.
Is there a particular reason to not update this new position ?
I would prefer something like this:
