This seems useful if implemented well. I envision a drop-down below the 'saved 
histories' menu item that appears on extended hover and provides links to 
recent histories. To implement I suggest:

(a) create a SQLAlchemy query of user's histories sorted by last update time 
with limit N (e.g., 5)

(b) provide this list to the index.mako template in the root.py/index method

(c) refresh the middle frame using handle_refresh_frames() code in message.mako
