It's got some work to it, but not much.  I created the package with ease 
of packaging in mind.

Basically, to bump it, one would do the following:

* Add the bookmarks to your running Firefox
* Find the top level 'Bookmarks' menu, then click 'Organize Bookmarks'
* Click 'Import & Backup' > 'Export HTML'
* save the file
* To make legal happy, remove any ICON="..." occurrences in the file.  I 
generally just gedit and manually remove them.
* Load the file in firefox (File > Open File) just to sanity check
* Overwrite default-bookmarks.html in the package directory
* Bump the spec file and add a changelog entry
* commit, tag, build

Sure.  Let me know.
