parts needed for marks and data management

we need a useful drag and drop capable browser.

this should be able to show the marks structure as a tree, with comments embedded appropriately, and all the subnodes, collapsible.

we should be able to drag and drop between these things easily.

firefox bookmarks is close, but not quite enough.
plus we don't create exactly the same input file through this process, do we?:

generate firefox bookmarks format from my links db.
edit firefox bookmarks in firefox.
parse the firefox format back to my links db.

=> don't we lose some link orderings and some comments and such?
not that we support section comments or link comments yet anyhow.

anyway, the point here is not to cobble something together from shell commands.
if we could add a plugin in the firefox bookmark manager somehow, that might be what i needed, but i fear not.

or if there code was general enough to be popped out as a new app, i could start with their code.
but that kind of defeats the whole purpose of writing a data manager uber notes dragon kind of deal on top of feisty meow, or with it, or whatever.

the biggest missing component for such an app is a reliable windows parts library that's portable and accessible from c++. i've tried a bunch of them, but none seemed quite right. are people still doing this kind of support library? would be good to catch up on state of the art.
