     11Currently, changing to a new directory appends a directory entry in  
     12top of the directory history and removes any previous identical  
     13entries from the history. This unique append is a really handy  
     14feature, but isn't it more convenient and intuitive to insert the  
     15new directory entry right after the current directory in the history 
     16list? This way when you want to visit all of the subdirectories of  
     17the current directory you can get back to the current directory  
     18conveniently with only one "back" command. As it is now, to get back 
     19to the parent directory I have to go back in history an increasing  
     20number of times as each new subdirectory I visit is increasing the  
     21distance in the history list from the last entry to its parent.

     23Of course, this would involve changing list_append_unique in util.c  
     24and another parameter to this method indicating where in history we  
     25are currently. The method should still remove entries which are not  
     26unique.

     28I am waiting for your feedback in case you disagree with me.

    1336The problem is that the functions "Back" and "Forward" in history  
    1437lose their appeal when the sequence of the history list changes.
