AppWatch: a simple Mac OS X application launcher

Appwatch is a simple application launcher for Mac OS X. It observes the applications that you launch and quit, and builds a menu of "Recent", "Frequent" and "Long-Running" applications. The only UI is the Menu Bar Icon, and the menu itself (and some preferences dialogs).
You can use the mouse, or press ⌘-esc (apple-escape) to activate the menu.
It's Tiger (10.4)-only and won't work on older versions of OSX. It stores all of its collected information in a SQLite (the engine used by Core Data) database file located at ~/Library/Preferences/AppWatch.db
