Disabling Leopard’s ridiculous “Are you sure you want to open it?” dialogues

Turns out it's easy. Just create a text file called com.apple.DownloadAssessment.plist under Library/Preferences in your home directory, with the following content:

<plist version="1.0">

Then log out and back in. Done.

Update: The instructions for Snow Leopard are slightly different.
