[TxMt] Feature Request: Open Recent Files/Projects implementation idea

I know this is probably on Allan's To Do list, and was mentioned not 
too long ago by others, but I haven't found the actual implementation 
discussed anywhere. So here goes my 2 cent worth of ideas.

I think the ideal implementation of this feature is just like the Apple 
implementation in the Apple Menu's - Recent Items. The applications (= 
projects) and the files (= TM single non-project files opened) are 
separated as sub-menus of the menu item. Nice, clean and easy to use.

The settings for the number of items stored in each sub-menu should 
then be set in the Preferences window, something along the line of what 
is in System Preferences - Appearance -> Number of Recent Items:

For the past month or so I've been working with 3 projects opened at 
all times. Then over the weekend I closed them down and looked through 
some new code from a friend. As a result, I now have to 'go hunting' 
for the .tmproj files through the Finder. I know, it doesn't stop me 
from working, but this is just some basic 'spit & polish' to correct a 
minor workflow problem in an otherwise fantastic app.

Kind regards,
