script type
Based on some advice given by Benji Fisher on utilizing a buffer local variable to store the current position.  It becomes a virtual mark as it doesn't take up one of the normal vim 'marks' a-zA-Z, instead it uses a variable.  They are local to a buffer, just like normal marks.  Useful for scripts that need to keep position, but don't want to change the user's mark setting.
install details
Put in your plugin directory.  Can be used either from a Script or the command line.  Two user commands SetMark and GoMark.  Argument is just like normal mark  command a a-z character.
