|good book marking

I don't know about the rest of you, but I still frequently type in URLs by hand, even the ones I use every day, because I can type www.metacrawler.com faster than I can navigate the necessary terrain to end up there magically. Plus there's nothing I hate more than bookmark management, so my bookmarks consist mostly of web sites from 1994 that have been dead long enough to smell.
We really ought to bring a smidgen of intelligence to this process. If I haven't visited a bookmark in six weeks (or six months, or some configurable period of time) then I probably don't give a damn any more. If on the other hand a heavily used bookmark has gone 404 or 304 or changed in some other interesting fashion, I want to know that soon.
I want to be told when I'm using my bookmarks badly! Why is a heavily used one four submenus deep? Why do I have "Bob's Luserpage" at the top when I haven't touched it in weeks? Let me order my bookmarks according to various interesting metrics, like most recently changed pages, most recently visited bookmarks, largest overall page size. Flatten the submenus into one big list. Generate a daily/weekly/somethingly report about what my bookmarks are up to behind my back.
Tab completion (against the session browsing history and all the user's bookmarks) would be nice.
And bring me some sharks with laser beams on their heads!
