Cue http://xkcd.com/1172/ .

But that does not supports the "generic unix" case. Reciprocally, keep in mind
that Fedora has had it disabled for at least 4 releases and we have not had any
bug reports concerning that either.

And only allows to do that one document at a time, because as soon as you have
opened one, the only way to go back to the start center is to close the
document. So the user needs to remember two ways to access recently opened
documents. (Three, actually, because the desktop typically offers one as well.)
But whatever... I have had enough of this discussion. I will revert my earlier
commit and just handle it in Fedora.
