Location of recently-used file
now at bitwi.se

The issue is the name and location of the recently-used file. In Gtk
2.10.0, the location changed to ~/.recently-used.xbel, because the
format changed. This change doesn't agree with neither the xml
format, nor the location of the file, as specified in version 0.2 of
the "Recent File Storage Specification" . Also, following the 0.6
version of the "XDG Base Directory Specification"  suggests that it
should be stored in either $XDG_CACHE_HOME/recently-used.xbel or
$XDG_DATA_HOME/recently-used.xbel depending on how "essential" this
So it seems that  needs an update, if the new format that Gtk is
using is the one that XDG wants to use as well, which I suppose it is.
Also, why doesn't  follow the suggestions for file locations as
specified in .
