Thanks Dragos, but I can't find 'em... What version exactly? Do you mean 
the back (and forward) arrow, and that you can click-hold and get a 
history of where that particular pane has been? If so.. that's handy in 
reducing the pain of not having bookmarks, but it isn't bookmarks.

While still hoping I'm blind to Dragos' suggestion and it's just there.. 
here's some more on workflow:

Basically...  I jump around different desktops and approach things and 
twiddle knobs from different angles. There's usually a few places that 
most of the work gets done.. such as in a shop parameter pane, or a vop 
network, or a chop net... and in the old days I'd always be able to pick 
a pane, use the bookmark, and get my really really really significant 
bit of stuff on screen really really quickly. Especially these days this 
stuff can get nested pretty deep, and I'm getting old, and my baby 
daughter wakes me up too early... ahh woe with me.

They're also a really useful when you're struggling through someone 
else's complex setup, bookmark a few useful spots and you don't need to 
remember it was in /obj/blah/foo/bugreit4/bar/bar_copy1/grumble/yodelly3.

Firefox introduced tabs, and didn't remove bookmarks ;)
