OK, good. Would it be possible to maintain a list of recently modified files
within gnome-libs, with accessor functions like gnome_recent_files_add_entry,
gnome_recent_files_get_list etc, and with duplicate checking etc handled by 
Gnome? I guess we don't need every file modified by mv, cp -R etc to appear 
on the list, so we don't need to worry about gnome-aware shell tools. Are 
there security issues I'm overlooking?
