I guess we could indeed make a tracker-miner-gtk-recent 

Since last few months we have been working on cleanly separating the
tracker-miner-* from the tracker-store. The tracker-miner-fs is just one
such miner. The separating of store and miner is fully completed now.

Adrien Bustany, a summer of code student, has been working on miners for
Facebook and Flickr this summer. We started discussing and integrating
his work this week.

A miner like tracker-miner-gtk-recent wouldn't use inotify or any other
filemonitoring, but only the gtk-recent library.
