Thanks.  I've seen that you managed to convert this suggestion into
a prototype before I replied to your email...  Thanks again for that,
too!  I hope to have this feature soon on master - I use bookmarks
heavily for many things (files, local and remote directories), and
online docs in eww would be a natural thing for me.

Best,
