The question is how clever does it need to be to not fail at odd times. 
  If someone can come up with an easily explainable and implementable 
algorithm for this that doesn't appear to be opening up a can of worms 
or rather a stream of bug reports, we'll consider it.  What concerns me 
are the special cases -- it's easy to get the first 80%, but the next 
20% is often much harder.  Please contact us directly about this unless 
you feel the details are of general interest for the list.

At first I thought you meant a tool pane with a list of open files, 
which is something we plan to do.  But, do you want another drop-down 
menu?  I guess I fail to see how this would be different from the Window
