Bookmarks can be grouped in folders and also via smartfind queries. The latter
permit the creation of dinamic folders that show the bookmarks that satisfy a
condition. This is flexible as it allows a bookmark to reside in as many folders
as the user specifies. The downside is that the user has to take action and
create every query he has the need of.

A better scenario is the auto-creation of the specified folders by means of user
defined categories. Each bookmark can be assigned N space separated categories.
In this way, there is no need to create a smartfind queries, as every bookmark
will automatically belong to as many "folders" as it has categories and it would
be possible to incrementally select categories thus minimizing the number of
search results.

For example, a bookmark about a Perl regex tutorial in spanish might be assigned
the categories "article spanish perl". When browsing the bookmarks, a search for
category "article" would show all bookmarks that have article as a category.
Adding "spanish" to the search would interactively refine the search.

This schema has the benefits of the smartfind queries, but makes it a little
more automatic.

MASS-CHANGE:
This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.
