Absolutely essential feature for me.

By the way, there's a bug in the MRU code.

1. Open Geany with say 3 files,
2. ctrl-tab until you reach the very same file you have currently displayed,
3. release ctrl,
4. ctrl-tab again. Nothing happens until you ctrl-tab one more time.

I have a patch for it in my yet-to-be-reviewed patch queue (for more
than a year). I also have a patch for the popup window so it shows the
current file in bold and the following three files in MRU below it. It
helps with "predicting" which file opens after ctrl-tab next.
