Please do not overload Lazarus with useless features.
Removing "Recent Files" and Recent Project" entries without actually 
removing the actual files/projects, is simply stupid. Anyone accessing 
the system can list files/directories and from the dates know exactly 
which files/projects were accessed, or modified.
If whatever paranoid need of privacy is an issue, files and projects 
should be kept in a removable support: when the support is removed the 
Recent items which become inaccessible are removed from the list, 
without the need of any extra feature.
