Or getting rid of a bunch of temp movies you previewed while video editing; or 
hiding the names of mp3s for a compilation you're going to give as a surprise 
gift; or avoiding a supervisor to find out you've been playing a movie instead 
of working; or hiding proof you've been writing a CV to your current employer 
.... Privacy has really a bunch of aspects.

I'd love having such an UI entry in all programs which offer a list of 
recently used files, not only video/audio/photo apps; ie KOffice, KRita, 
K3b... There's a lot!
