Let's not mix in the discussions on whether or not we should have

But what do you mean with "most used directories" is "the wrong
approach"? In fact the Canonical design team want such a section for
Unity "Recent Folders" - I am not arguing for or against it - merely
noting that at least some usability-folks believe that it might be a
good idea.

Furthermore I think Markus' idea is fundamentally unworkable - for my
habits at least. I tend to browse my photo collection a lot together
with my children, looking at 1-2 different folders with maybe 200 files
(200 image views in eog). So if I want my "recent folders" result to
contain more than these two dirs I have to request 200+ events!

Tracking recent directories

Bug description:
This is a feature request, please reassign wherever you see fit :-)

Currently recent files are tracked as items. Recent directories would also be 
useful to track.

E.g. I edit files in geany, compile code that produce an executable that need 
to be debugged in Nemiver. When Nemiver is opened it would save a lot of time 
if the directory was available under a "recent directories" heading somewhere.
