I see.  I took a look, but it's not clear to
me what the display differences are.  What's
an example of an Ibuffer-like display feature
that you're thinking of here?

I see.  No, I hadn't noticed that.  Apparently
it's about which windows to use for bookmark
targets, when you open ("jump to") multiple
bookmarks.  You can do that in various
configurations, such as a spiral of windows.

By default, Bookmark+ uses only the same or
other window - or other frame.  When jumping
to the marked bookmarks, other windows are
used (other-frames if `pop-up-frames').

[But you can use anything as a bookmark "jump"
function.  And different types of bookmarks
can have their type-specific jump functions.
(And some kinds of bookmarks don't need to
use windows at all: their "locations" are
something else.)]

No, no.  I was just mentioning that some type
predicates exist, and they work fine with Blist.
