You can read what Bookie is here, but here's the long and short of it:
Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.

I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP. I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if they can help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC, which is both simpler and more intelligent.

Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries. If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources (I know it's a long URL, I'm trying to keep it synced with the mozilla codebase) and copy the directories into your dist/bin/chrome/bookie directory. I will see if I can wrap it into an XPInstall script for easier access. Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool tutorial.

You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions. Go to your mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and "nmake -f makefile.win" should take care of the problem.
