Well.. what if there was a quickopen-file shortcut that shows you all the 
files in a most-recently-used order? The files would be about exactly as 
accessible as they are when they are open(when you use quickopen to access

That's true.

Of course I also usually work on multiple files at a time, let's say it's 3 in 
the average. But around those files, there's usually about 7 other files that 
I'm not working with, that I just opened some time to look something up. 
Those additional files currently make it a lot harder getting an overview of 
the exact files I'm working on.
