Over at TUAW, they report a pretty cool implementation of Stacks feature in Leopard on the Touch (which of course can also be done on iPhone).

New York, Baby!
How many apps do you need though?

I'm thinking 4 stacks with 5 apps in each would be more than enough. Then the main part of the home screen could hold the original iPod/iPhone apps. Very nice.

Pretty cool idea, but I like the idea of the icon on your home screen. Unless of course, you don't like all the clutter. I probably wouldn't use it, but someone try it and tell us how it works!
Awesome, but it could get a bit rubbish when you have tons of apps...
I like a lot of these ideas, but they fall apart for most people when they go to use them. For example, I loved the idea of the starburst Dock, but after installing it, I quickly uninstalled it probably before the day was over. I'm betting that when Apple finally gets around to allowing more apps into the system, they're going to have a fairly clean solution... possibly similarly Leopard-esque. They always get boffed for stomping on developers' work (even if that work is derivative from their own), so it should be amusing to see what happens.
