In general I agree, many thinks can be done as plugin.

In this case, I think:

part 1 is an actual bug in the current implementation. If I reduce "max 
recent procject" from 10 to 1, then the list will still display 10. That 
is wrong. It should be cut to 1. But it will only be cut, if I open a 
new project (via the open dialog).

part 2 is a feature. It could go in a plugin (assuming IdeIntf allows 
access to all needed functions).
And then it can not use the current spin edit, but instead must have a 
checkbox. Or always active if installed.

Not sure how practical that is in this case. A plugin could probably 
hide the menu entry. So that would be possible. Not sure if it can (with 
current IdeIntf) prevent the values from being written to the config file.
