No, it is not in SVN yet.

Bookmarks will be implemented in jsword.jar so it will be available to 
all jsword based programs. The format is not settled yet. My thought was 
xml. I've started on it, but haven't gotten very far. So if you want to 
recommend one that would be fine. There is an issue in Jira for it.

The "Save/Save As" conceptually is a book mark, but the file format is 
not what will be used for a bookmark. So once bookmark is implemented 
then Save/Save As will be implemented in terms of a bookmark or may go 
away altogether.
