Unfortunately the recent items menu is an OS feature and if I want to 
split it up into project/document, I'd have to re-invent it myself, but 
that means I'd have to figure out which settings the OS version 
supports (like number of recent items), how Finder gets the recent 
items from applications, how recent items are serialized into my 
preferences (from where e.g Quicksilver reads them) etc.

So this is one of these, a lot of work re-inventing my own, because 
Apple's version currently lack a little flexibility.

It may eventually be done, but currently the benefit/work seems to low 
compared to other stuff that competes for my time.
