Well, I looked through the list, and frankly, I don't care about most of
them.  My needs are *very* simple - I just want to tell Emacs "save the
currently visited URL as a bookmark under name such-and-such".  But
I can see how other people might need at least some of them,
e.g. controlling whether Emacs should open a new eww session when
jumping to a bookmark or not (I rarely use eww, basically only for a few
cases, so I don't care about multiple eww buffers).

Thanks for working on this,
