My preference would be to have the selected history handling done by
type rather than source. For example, I might be regularly editing a
file1.txt (and thus file1.txt would appear in and I would be selecting
it from the "File Name History" source). However, I might then do
something that results in many files being opened (thus filling my
recent files list). If the history handling was done by source, then
file1.txt would still show up at the top of the "Locate" source even
though I hadn't been selecting it from that source since both the
"File Name History" source and the "Locate" source deal with objects
of type "file".
