As the name suggests, its supposed to keep the last-used documents on

Unfortunately there are bugs in the mainwindow-library (sublime) that
cause the corresponding signal that the plugin uses to be emitted at
incorrect times, hence the order is sometimes incorrect or lost. I
didn't find the time to debug this so far.
