It does not answer the question, but I thought worth mentioning: check the side option of the footmisc package (but it turns all footnotes into marginpars) – henrique Oct 12 '13 at 17:10
There's the sidenotes package and the snotez package. IIRC the memoir class also provides sidenotes. – clemens Oct 12 '13 at 17:27
\renewcommand\themparcnt{\textbf{\arabic{mparcnt}: }}


See margin~\ref{p:test} for a labeltest
