Why would the lenght of a path make any differece? However, the list could get very long in a day if it was the actual files you were listing instead of just their directories, so both a most-recent-files list and most-recent-directories list would probably make more sense.

How can it require less thought than something that's automatic? You have to tell an assign what it's name is as well as what directories it should point to. My idea is that every time you access a file with the requester its path is added (or moved) to the top of a most-recent list of X number of paths.

Well, as I'm already an Amiga user, I don't need them in REBOL anyway. When root is working in the REBOL requester my assigns will already be in it.
