Little things that matter in language design
Recent documents can be very nice even if you are just working on a large software project with lots of files in it.
I must be out of the mainstream :-)

But to my mind using "recent documents" for the purpose does fit in well with the "one tool for one job" principle. That doesn't necessarily mean the "recent documents" implementation in GNOME 2 of course - perhaps the one in GNOME 3? I would also not mind sufficiently good document/window/application management that we could dispense with the MDI/tabbed window orgy that is currently fashionable - it seems to me that that definitely is the job of something in the desktop environment (window manager, task manager, whatever).
I'm just not so sure if GNOME 3/GNOME Shell as such fits in so well with the "one tool for one job" thing though.
