I dont' think "nowhere" is an option at all; this issue is just plain
embarassing and its solution has been postponed for way too long.

If it can't be implemented properly in GTK in this time frame, then I
say too bad, it can just be a libgnomeui thing.  GTK-only apps will
never be able to do the MIME filetypes handling properly, nor can handle
a GConf-based recent file/folder list, and hence are doomed to a world
of file selector suckiness anyways.

Besides, you don't want us to port Evolution to KDE do you?  :-)
