I'm just a user as you are. Being no Autodesk employee: I do not know where this road will lead to, nor do I claim to've all stuff got right.

@ RecentFile:
RecentFile works only right at launch. As soon as there's some scene it isn't active any more (which of course makes sense).
Would it be possible to use the same Recent list for Import too? Some "Import Recent"?

@ DiscardHistory:
Think a label like "DiscardUndoHistory" or "ClearUndoHistory" would be more self explaining (but maybe to long). ATM this clears the history immediately. Think some confirmation dialog here, explaining that you can't undo previous things any more would not be that bad.

@ "d" on DropSolids:
Just fine. - Not sure whether that's a "small improvement": Maybe its doable to add some "AutoDropSpacing"? Meaning some slider threshold which drops a duplicate automatically after the MESHMIX part was moved a geodesic distance (set by the AutoDropSpacing threshold in % of the part's current diameter-similar to Spacing in SCULPT/Surface) from the last drop (the first one done via "D")? Zero = NoAutoDrop.

so you are saying that after you load a scene you don't see the recent files list anymore? I do on Windows...maybe it is a mac thing...

Yes, here on OSX 10.11.3 the MM menu entry RecentFiles is greyed out as soon as you load a scene in any way. Other apps allow to access "recently used" lists also after some stuff is loaded - so it's not some basic limitation by OSX.

A handy small feature would be to allow to "C + modifier"-snap the virtual cam's orbit to a pivot ( e.g. to inspect an object from within based on an interior pivot)
(BTW: Seems setting the orbit to backfaces  (zoom in to go through the nearby clipping plane and set the orbit on the other side's backfaces) seems not to work any more)
