We don't care about users, we do this for fun, not for being usable
;) (Just kidding of course, thx for the input).

I have to admit that I don't know what I was thinking, of course it
makes perfect sense to close the files belonging to a project when
closing it. Sorry for stealing everybody's time :(

Not needed anymore, we've got multi-project support in 4.

Not possible and not sensible due to the multi-project support. We don't
know to which project-context external files belong, so we can't close
them automatically.
