It sounds like you're wanting to access the back/forward list
directly. getHistoryLength() and historyURL() are *primarily* in
FrameLoader for use internal to FrameLoader.
Since the back/forward list is more a property of the Page you should
be manipulating it from there if you need more advanced information
Like you already pointed out, this is cake - anywhere you have a
frame, you just call frame->page()->backForwardList()
