Sorry, I didn't actually think too hard about those suggestions. For
consistency with QWidget, "isClearActionVisible" and
"setClearActionVisible" would make more sense, but I still don't
really like these either.

One obvious question is whether we need to provide this option at all.
If we decide to accept this patch and allow some applications to
easily clear the recent file list, do we really want to make it
