careful ... we've been down this road before not that long ago. i
think we've established that the word "project" is used in a very
loose, informal sense with subversion. most people equate it with a
top-level directory in a repository but it really has no *technical*
meaning since you can check out any directory in a repo equally
easily.

if someone wants to formalize that "project" means top-level
directory, that's fine. but for now, it's kind of vague.
