OTOH, as this is "just for" a Gui-Plugin, maybe I can use the same 
behavior on windowz as on linux (i.e. write RecentFiles to a file in 
$HOME/AppData instead of the registry) so this issue would not have to 
be fixed right now.
while this might be less conventional, it could always change when/if 
you want to include this feature in standard pd ?

I spent the last days asking myself if that would make sense to rewrite 
the whole pd-gui in Qt instead of tcl/tk.
