#3584 new enhancement

Remember recent mapsets

GRASS GIS should store the recent mapsets and then offer them to the user. The recent mapsets list can be part of the Settings > GRASS working environment or the (new) startup.

This is distinct from remembering recent workspaces (#2604) because mapsets are perhaps used more as they are. (All users need to start a session using mapsets rather workspace, at least until #3575 and #1204.)

It is also distinct from remembering recent database (#572) because storing just the database (directory) does not give the desired quick access to the mapsets (to start a session) and because if we would just store recent mapsets they all can be from one database, so extracting database path from mapset path doesn't necessarily give the recent databases. In other words, last five mapsets can be all from one database, so that doesn't give us the last five databases.
