By default qmake would like for the name of the .pro file to be the same as 
the directory name.  I think we should attempt to stick with this idea as 
much as possible, instead of giving the ability to make your .pro file 
whatever you want.  There is a flexibility vs. standard tradeoff.

Does anyone else think it's important to support this feature?  Perhaps as an 
intermediary we can have it scan the directory for the first .pro file if it 
doesn't find the one it wants.
