Maybe it still is hard-coded.  I can't see any way to change it.

Have you tried Lancelot (in place of kickoff)?  It has two columns - Recent 
Documents and New.  Recent Documents still has 9 entries, but maybe the New 
column can extend this?  At the moment it only has one in that column on my 
system, so I don't know how many it can take.  Anyway, it's worth a try.  
FWIW, Lancelot retains the Search that was so useful in kickoff, but is, IMO 
much better to work with.  You can descend a tree by hovering, instead of 
having to click, for one thing.
