Bug Description

Launcher - Allow apps to easily add a list of 'recently used file' to their quicklists.

Description:
Add a list of the 5 most recently used files to the Quicklists of all applications that support Zeitgeist tracking. This list would be generated using Zeitgeist, and applications could opt out of this functionality by adding a simple statement like "ShowRecentFiles=false" to their .desktop file.

This list would be displayed in the quicklist as follows:

====================
[application specific quicklist options area]
--------------
[application name]
--------------
Windows:
[window title 1]
[window title 2]
[window title 3]
--------------
Most recent files:
file one.odt
file two.odt
file three.odt
file four.odt
file five.odt
--------------
Keep in launcher
Quit
====================

This is a work item in https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-p-zeitgeist, so I have to add a wontfix precise task to indicate that this gets postponed to Q. It seems we can't rely on this landing in Precise any more.
