That's a very succinct way to put that.

I'd be afraid of complicating the BC functionality. Is there an example
out there where this multi-level BC functionality is implemented
successfully. I'm not saying it's not, just that I can't think of one off
the top of my head.

My bread crumbs use case is more complicated than a simple click on a back
button. I am constantly managing work for multiple milestones and
enhancements in multiple different online apps. The BC plugin is key to me
being able to remember what I've done and go back just a little bit. I
won't necessarily even have a history tomorrow that isn't gummed up by
85,000 other links.

But, that may just be me.

That's a profound truth. I'd like to have a more contained (??)
implementation of that.
