eWallet: Clearing Recently Used Wallets

This isn't exactly a web development post, but it really bothers me that eWallet has a "Recently Used Wallets" section that doesn't have any sort of aging. After a period of disuse, wallets should fall out of the "Recently Used" category, no?

The next time you restart eWallet, the entries will be gone!
