I've never used Wing, but unless its `project' concept is radically
different than many other editors, it isn't about organizing the files
on disk. Rather, it is about organizing a group of files into a
collection the editor can open in one swell foop. The idea is to
liberate you from having to recall just where the files live and allow
you to merely open a group of related files and get on with what
you're up to. (It is sort of like saving a group of tabs in firefox.)
