Add "Recent Application" stack to leopard dock (tweak series)

This tweak is very useful, i cant imagine why apple hasn't integrated it itself (there aren't lots of things apple hasn't thought about in its OS unlike windows where third party is necessary and no way to do without)

this tweak adds a recently used application stack to the dock and allows to see as a stack the recent applications you lunched.
in order to do that open terminal and use this command (don't use sudo!):

defaults write persistent-others -array-add '{ "tile-data" = { "list-type" = 1; }; "tile-type" = "recents-tile"; }'
killall Dock

after the stack is in the dock you can change it to show one of:
"Recent Applications"
"Recent Documents"
"Recent Server" (no icons for some reason)
"Favorite volumes"
"Favorite Items"

also you can call the command several times and add as many stacks as you want so you can have "Recent Documents" and "Recent Applications" as etc.
