..would be a nice feature. It has been
requested a few times in the forums
lately.

It would be easy to implement today
already (with the current layers.dll)
by means of some ugly and primitive
macro hacking - see for example
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=4&i=3264&t=3234

..were it not for two *minor*(?) issues:
1) "Bug" (misunderstanding?) number 331
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/bugs/viewbug.php?bugid=331
that I just filed :)
2) A macro that "saves" all the
currently open URL:s (e.g into
Prefs.js) need to have a way
to know how many layers that are
currently open.. I guess. So a
$numOfOpenLayers=pluginmsgex(layers,"NumberOfOpenLayers","null",INT);
command would be helpful..

Reading/writing a bookmarks file is a job for a bookmarking plugin. We first need to teach those plugins to bookmark all open windows to one folder and later open a full folder. After that it is easy to add support to also handle layers. I think..

The layers plugin now have macro functions: NumberOfWindows, NumberOfLayersInWindow, GetLayersInWindow, and ReplaceLayersInWindow. That should be enough to allow saving and restoring "sessions" to prefs.js.

I still search information on how Mozilla/Firebird handle group bookmarks and how to add compatible features to the K-Meleon bookmarks UI.
