I'm an avid user of CtrlPMRUFiles. I would like to add a new prompt
mapping ToggleRelative to change the value of g:ctrlp_mruf_relative

Would you accept this pull request?
What shortcut? <C-i>, <C-q> or <C-u>?
CtrlP is awesome. :-)

This is my current workaround to change the variable outside the CtrlP prompt.

let g:ctrlp_mruf_relative = 1
nnoremap <silent> so :exec g:ctrlp_mruf_relative == 0 ? "let g:ctrlp_mruf_relative = 1 \| CtrlPMRUFiles" : "let g:ctrlp_mruf_relative = 0 \| CtrlPMRUFiles"<CR>

By the way I have written a plugin that works very well with CtrlPMRUFiles.

This will create a <c-@> mapping which you can use to toggle mruf_relative while in the prompt:

let g:ctrlp_buffer_func = {
    \ 'enter': 'PrtEnFunc',
    \ }

func! PrtEnFunc()
    nnoremap <buffer> <silent> <c-@> :call ToggleMRURelative()<cr>

func! ToggleMRURelative()
    let g:ctrlp_mruf_relative = !g:ctrlp_mruf_relative
    call ctrlp#call('s:Reset', {})
    call ctrlp#call('s:PrtClearCache')

I'm still undecided about adding this in, and the most I'll probably add is the ToggleMRURelative function.

Thanks @kien. Also should be available for binding. c-@ requires the shift on my keyboard.
I would prefer s:ToogleMRURelative() and the entry in the manual. I can make the pull request if you wish.

I've already made the change, just haven't merged it. Also, that snippet is supposed to go into .vimrc, so you can choose the key and use it in any case.
