10.6: Enable 10.5-style mouseover highlights in Stacks

I'm certainly thrilled to see this hint! I used to use "killall Dock", until I was informed that the Applescript "tell application "Dock" to quit" is potentially less abrasive to the system. So a complete Applescript equivalent to the action might be:

do shell script "defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hilite-stack -boolean yes"
tell application "Dock" to quit

I hadn't noticed before that "killall Dock" also caused the Desktop Background to cycle when it's set to automatically change pictures.
