Subject : Allow option to have documentation history list to have submenus

Error Class	: change-request
Error Location	: documentation browser
Priority	: low
Bug Description ---------------------------

The pulldown menus for the "forward" and "back" buttons in the documentation history are much improved in this version in terms of clutter.

However, I could suggest a further improvement: Place subtopics into submenus. That is, when browsing a topic, and then navigating via an internal anchor, place the internal anchor navigation into a submenu instead of adding a whole new menu entry.

Alternatively, simply have an option that disables internal navigations from adding elements to the history menu.

Why do I want this? My typical usage pattern for documentation is this: When I'm working with a class, I tend to look up lots of different member functions of that class; I often need to revisit the class, but I seldom need to revisit individual members of the class. Sincce these are cluttering up the history meny making it hard to read, I would like to get them out of the way.
