Well with vfs, this should take care of itself really.

I don't think the recently-used-files needs to be perfect.  It's better if
it's simple and if it works exactly as advertized.

I mean if it doesn't show a file you opened when logged in from remote, or if
it can't open a file on a cdrom if that cdrom isn't there with a "File not
found".  Oh well, that's not a huge problem.  I think the user will figure
out what's going wrong.  (It could perhaps do a strstr(path,"cdrom") and if
so say "Perhaps you forgot to insert a CDROM")
