This patch was the best thing that ever happened to code navigation in
KDevelop, too bad it hasn't been accepted :(. Please also see my
wishlist item where the stackhistory is explained by example:

I find myself switching back to developing in Visual Studio everytime I
have the possibility to, just because kdevelop's document switching
methods feels so cumbersome to me. I either have to use the mouse to
switch to the document I want or press ALT+LEFT/RIGHT repeatedly,
instead of one single keycombo that takes me where I want instantly.

So +1 for stack based document history switching (NOT edit history
switching) from an otherwise happy KDevelop user.
