I'm still not really convinced, maybe I don't imagine it well enough.
When using MRU documents switching, I still need to use both features:
Ctrl-Tab to switch between documents and code navigation back/forward
to navigate inside _one_ document and I need to remember where which
code was.
Hmm, maybe I'm missing something or imagine it too complicated. And I'm
also not that against it as it might sound, just worried.
