One of my goals when rewriting galeon's bookmark code was to keep it as
independent of galeon as possible. It currently is a (static) lib that
can be compiled without the rest of galeon. This was done for
maintainability reasons only.

So, the current bookmark library does not depend on galeon. However, it
has been designed with a web browser in mind, and I'm not sure that it
would be useful for a file manager.

In galeon2, the autocompletion system is also independent of galeon, and
actually i had thought about cleaning it and the location entry widget
and proposing them to libegg. It could be useful for entering filenames
or urls.

I wanted first to try to improve its performance. It currently takes a
lot of time building the GtkTreeView and GtkListStore to show possible
