Not yet, but it's on my short-term to-do list.  I underestimated how
often users would want to move projects around, and I've been wary of
possible side effects from re-writing files automatically, but it's
not difficult to implement.  As a temporary solution, I will send you
a script later today to fix the job files all at once.
