comment find on a set of dirs that may not exist
Nice but I think I could do the python part in sh as well...however, the hard part is the find --- I need some filters there and xargs only puts args at the end of the line (as far as I know xargs--which is very little ;))

comment Disable “Recently used” in GTK file/directory selector
Well indeed it does disable the Recent item (upvoting...) but no item is pre-selected, which still feels a bit strange and is cumbersome to use with keyboard only. Maybe there's similar item as StartupMode=recent in GTK2...?
