Unfortunately history is *not* an array of locations, at least not one where
you can access individual elements. There's been a lot of discussion on the
to access elements is that it's a security hole, since you can get the data
from GET forms with it. There's a chance it'll be in 2.1 when they've added
some sort of data-tainting mechanism.
(it's a pity, since I had a few neat tricks in mind with it...)
