Do you want (1) just recent files, or do you want to create and save (2) an
arbitrary set of files and directories that you can return to later?

1. For recent files, I use recentf. I use `icicle-recent-file', actually, which
lets you complete against parts of the file names.

2. You can use Icicles to create and save named sets of files and dirs for later
use. See
