That's strange, my marks are maintained when I do an reload the buffer with :e,
and the jumplist seems to be preserved, too. I never use either mechanism, but
a little experiment shows they are still there. Perhaps there are other things
that are erased too though, a side-effect I hadn't thought of.
Perhaps it is something to do with my vimrc; I am pretty keen on keeping things
around for as long as possible (:set hidden, :set history=1000, etc)
Marks are remembered in the viminfo: local marks according to 'nn (nn = number
of files) which must be included whenever 'viminfo' is nonempty, and global
marks according to f (default=all, fn [n != 0] =all, f0 = none).
The assertion that "all men are created equal" was of no practical use
in effecting our separation from Great Britain and it was placed in the
Declaration not for that, but for future use.
