This is an idea for the future Nautilus versions.

Bookmarks are nice, and it is good that Gnome doesn't mix WWW and
filesystem bookmarks like KDE does.

However, they still get hard to manage sometimes.

I think it would be very convienient at times to have context aware

What I mean by this, is that the bookmarks menu, or perhaps another
special context menu, would show bookmarks related to the current
location of Nautilus.

In other words, if you move to the /files directory, the bookmarks menu
would show only bookmarks rooted at /files and below.

If you then moved to /public/music, the menu would show bookmarks below
this directory.

Kind of an automatic clutter manager.

There are other related ideas that aren't hard to think of.

Not a necessary feature, and care would have to be taken to make sure it
didn't have a notable impact on performance, since it would likely be a
rarely used feature.
