I see UI issues looming here.
i'm certain this is a dupe of another bug

You may be remembering the post I made the the Chimera mailing list regarding
this issue. It took me a while to get around to entering this as a bug.

Hack to add bookmarks to dockmenu

This is a small hack to the main menu .nib that adds a submenu that mirrors the
bookmark menu.

Cool idea!

Has there been any activity on this issue, or is it just not priority at this
time.  It is a pretty straight forward, and a ridiculously simple change to
implement, and it is apparently much desired by the Chimera community.

So where does it stand currently?

I experimented with this recently. My current thinking is to have an
id="dockmenu" on the <folder> in the XML which will be the root folder for the
dock menu, and to allow the user to set that via the Bookmarks Info window. By
default, we could set it to the bookmarks toolbar folder.

Fixed. In the bookmarks info window, you can now assign a folder to be the 'dock
menu' folder, and its bookmarks will show up in the dock menu. This defaults to
the toolbar folder.

Interesting implementation, but shouldn't the folder selected have the name of
the folder in the dock menu with a submenu showing it's contents? An example of
this would be a "Toolbar Bookmarks" entry and then a submenu showing it's
contents. This would keep from flooding the menu with bookmarks from a folder
that has a large number of bookmarks.

Yeah, that is exactly what my hack accmplished.  It retained folder structure, and added 
all the bookmarks, not just the bookmarks toolbar.

I wanted to avoid always having a submenu under the dock menu. If you want all
your dock BM items under one folder, it's easy to arrange your bookmarks to do that.
this particular feature has been implemented, and i vrfy that it works with the
2002.11.11.04 build on 10.2.1. allowing a given bookmarks folder to be
accessible from the Dock can be done via the checkbox in the Get Info window.
also, to be clear, only one bookmarks folder can be designated as such.

i'll go do some regression testing in a bit (bug 178744) to make sure other
bookmarking features are still fine.
