No, it isn't. We don't use GtkRecentManager yet. We will probably switch
to using it with GIMP 2.6. Until then ~/.recently-used is being used as
the established way desktop-wide way to store recently used files as
defined by the respective Free Desktop spec. The documents file
in .gimp-2.3 is GIMP specific. The advantage is that it works on all
platforms. But we will probably want to drop it as soon as we start to
use GtkRecentManager.
