For a small number of projects, that can keep the session file for
years after the project is gone. Not a big deal though.

For many projects, well, you'd better max the recent count...

Of course. Personally I prefer to keep my projects clean from at least
the object files and executables, but the IDEs do not hesistate to put
there various .suo, .dsw, autogenerated .mak, entire directories even.
Ignoring one more file (or not putting in on VCS in the first place) is
hardly of any significance.
