As David said (and which might not have made it to the krusader list), it 
*might* be possible to import history using svk. But you need to talk to 
sysadmin at k.o about that. So I cannot be conclusive here.

Well, installed by default is ambiguous. If you're referring to kdebase, I 
think that is not an option for Krusader (at least not in the current 
situation). We're already shipping two filemanagers with it (while, with KDE4, 
we've tried really hard to get the number of apps in the standard modules down 
to one per type (i.e. one image viewer, one video player, ...). Extragear, to 
*me* sounds like a sensible option indeed, but ultimately it's up to module 
maintainers where Krusader can find its home.
