To clarify, I don't mean the project plugin. I used the word "project" 
in a generic sense.

However, that will not put you at ease if you think that adding a 
feature will remove other features. I do have sympathy and can imagine 
why you might think that.

Recent trends demand the user to conform to the developer's whims rather 
than the developer respecting the user, tradition, standards, APIs, 
standing on shoulders, etc. I'm not sure why open source developers feel 
the need to mimic this destructive behavior of jerking around their 
users. I wish I had all the features that I had back in 1999. I could 
literally do more with my computer back then.
