I'd think it would be possible to extend the playlist_control file to add a
PLAYLIST_COMMAND_BOOKMARK command for storage of bookmark(s). I suppose
they'd only make sense when appended to the playlist construction, so you'd
have a (fast) constructed playlist in memory anyway.

There should be no fundamental difference between a database selection and a
file selection - in both cases it's soon boiled down to a list of filenames
ready for use by PLAYLIST_COMMAND_ADD/_QUEUE. Or have I missed something?
