Unless you create this in a way that is usable without requiring (or
understanding) EDE, I fear that it will not be used by many
other packages. And that's the issue I started this thread for.

The issue is not that we would not have a way to define a project. We
do. Dozens of them, actually. Every package has their own. It's so
trivial to do for 90% of all use cases that most packages just write
their own code.

If we do not provide a way that is simpler to use than "I'll just
quickly write my own", the original problem will not go away. No matter
how much we say "but we have a solution".
