Had it been, just the history commands, then its ok. I agree. But what
is required is storing some additional options along with each history
item, makes it worse. It might look simple for just one additional
option (Run in terminal option). But in long term this might not be the
ideal, since as the options that we want to store along with each entry
increases, it makes this complex. Thatz my feel ! :)

Even galeon, stores the history in both xml (Complete option for each
entry)and gconf (Just the entries ) (my XD2 galeon does that).
