Working on it. . . a lot of stuff to clean up before this will behave
reliably, but it's starting to be functional.  Among other things, I'm
going back to text files, but with some extra optimizations for speed.
 I'm also going to make the default file handling more rational along
the way.

If anyone has strong feelings about how the project
management/interfaces in the GUI should (or should not) work, now
would be an excellent time to make them known.  (Comments can be sent
to me directly instead of the list.)
