Please don't. Make the bookmark file contain multiple bookmarks instead.

Yes, that is best. It looked to me like that is already the case. Was I wrong?

You actually don't need a filename. The bookmark filename tells you the name of the mp3 file.

Look at settings_load_config(). But I'm not sure "Label: Value" is a very good idea for this, since we want multiple bookmarks. A simple comma separated value list is probably better.

I suggest playing a bookmark file in the browser brings up a bookmark editor where you can view and delete bookmarks.
