      I understand now. Thanks for the explanation! Somehow I was stuck on
      thinking about an implementation with a list instead of a tree and there
      it would have had some issues. Like you describe it it makes perfect
      sense to me... I think it would be a great addition to Vim.

      Maybe you could put some text of your mail in the appriopriate help
      file: it might help others to understand how it works.

      Wouldn't such a marker be just a pointer to the corresponding node in
      the tree? Sounds cool, but maybe not really that useful.
