About the patch on that, I put it through the gimp test and found a
crasher around
the way I touched the connect/disconnect_proxy code, I've been busy the last
few days but I have some days off now and I'm confident I can iron out
that crasher
this week, I'll try to do some performance comparisons with gimp
before and after
the patch as well.

Something I hadnt mentioned yet while I await a review... was
recentchooser implementations,
currently I started with recentchooserdefault, which arguably shouldnt
be activatable, then I
did recentchoosermenu, which *must* be activatable, so I'll need to
know, which recentchooser
implementations do we think should be activatable, (currently I have
only the default and the menu).

Personally I think the button (there is a recentchooser button that
fires a file selection dialog ?) should be
activatable, along with the menu, I dont know if there is a reason to
have activatable dialogs (unless we
could eventually factor in a response as an "activate" signal...).

Anyway, I'll fix that crasher this week and hope for input on the
recent choosers... anything else
I can do to ease the process just let me know...
