If I'm in file A I use cmd-T to open file B, when done, I press cmd- 
W, and I'm back to A, if I need B again, I do cmd-T and return (which  
is already on B). If I need to go back and forth a lot, I use the  
option-cmd left/right of course.

I've changed it so that w/o a filtering string, it sorts items based  
on last time used.

I don't clear the filter string when pressing cmd-T -- but with your  
usage, you'd probably just have it cleared most of the time anyway.

And it has been on the to-do for some time -- but all this project  
stuff is really scheduled for 1.2.
