Well, I've cooked a patch to add support to display Recent Files in
Thunar (using the 'recently-used:'-URI). Dunno if its something that
should be kept. It's based on the current standard, but can be updated
to use XBEL later.

PS: I've also an 5-month old patch to add leaftag support, which I could
update to the latest Thunar version with some effort, if there's
interest (would add a 'tag:' filesystem with the list of current tags,
and a list of files for each tag). The idea was to replace the
emblem-mechanism with tags (tags have an associated image). In general I
think this would be very useful, but unfortunately leaftag doesn't scale
very well (as mentioned before) and it seems that leaftag is mostly dead
(nearly no SVN activity).
