Free disk space should be OFF at every start of BleachBit

Free disk space is indispensable feature which I use often, because I am running Linux off a flash drive and I back it up often. The back up is way smaller in size using this feature.
I just have a request that this feature is dis-selected by default and only be turned on when required. I keep forgetting to dis-select it after I used it when need it and then I have to wait 30 minutes to become responsive again, not to mention unnecessary writes to my flash drive.

Delete uneeded xorg drivers

I would like Bleachbit to be able to remove unneeded xorg log files:
"/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/"

for example, I only need, and will never need anything else but my integrated Intel driver.
There is a ton of useless drivers that for my system I will never use.

VLC media player?

I'm not seeing it--is there a way to get BleachBit to clean VLC's history? I'm running Linux.

Delete old Linux Kernels

It would be nice if BleachBit could remove old Kernels which are not automatically removed with

sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get clean

that cleans additionally several 100MB in the most cases.

Old Kernels can automatically removed with:
sudo dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge

Perhaps its possible to add this to BleachBit.

Thanks!

When installing bleachbit to /usr/local the locales are put in /usr/share instead of /usr/local/share

busybox swapoff

When using busybox swapoff the "-v" switch is not supported.

Work around:
sudo sed -i 's!, "-v"!!' /usr/local/share/bleachbit/Memory.py

Security concerns for updates...

Very fine software.

I have an important security concern I'm hoping you can help solve.

Question 1:
How can I be sure the .xml updates are legitimate and from you,
what checks are in place? Is there a method to verify the updates via hash or key or otherwise?

Question 2:
Can I accept 'all' updates at once without having to click OK to each one?

Thank you much.
Justin

Clear Nautilus (Linux, GNOME) history?

Can the next version implement a feature to clear out the Nautilus history, such as recently browsed directories? Currently, Bleachbit only seems to clear out recently used files and applications, but leaves the folder history untouched. I use openSUSE (GNOME) and Linux Mint (GNOME, based on Ubuntu).
