That's certainly useful -- for some people. For a lot of us, the list is
too short to be useful: the file I want has usually already dropped off
the list, even if it's a file I use several times a day. As a result, I
have stopped using the list and instead go directly to the file I want.

I'd like to be able to change the length of the Recent Files list. (I'd
change the length to zero.)
