I've read some critical comments on snapback. 

For one mpt makes the point that it can be confusing having two "back 
buttons" that look similar but act slightly different. 

Also the main reason that apple included the snap back feature was to avoid 
the use of a combo box, a gui element that they have historically avoided. 

We can provide snapback functionality pretty easily already anyway. Clicking 
on the combo box down button should display the most recently entered 
addresses in order from most recent to least recent. If it doesn't i 
consider it a bug.
