Does the "recent files" spec let you save a per-application recent

If so you could just save this as "recent file chooser directories" as
a hack, at least it avoids making up a new system. Though really the
idea here is "favorites/bookmarks" not "recent"

Or maybe you could have a hook similar to the one for the colorsel 

Or you could use XSETTINGS and we'll hook it to a gconf thing with
gnome-settings-daemon, problem then is that if someone isn't running
GNOME their favorite dirs will just get dumped on the floor.

The thing is, one can only hope that we'll get a prefs system sane
enough to live below GTK someday, and so I kind of hate to build up
too many silly homedir files in the meantime.
