Which project, there could be multiple ones and IIUC this is not in the
project config dialog... But we do have a configurable base url for
newly-generated projects which you could use as startup folder. I don't
know off-hand wether there's a public getter for this but you should be
able to see the config key in shell/settings/projectpreferences.cpp

I believe using the combo-requester would also make it much easier to
permanently store the urls, so its not only remembered during a session
but across sessions.
