Sure, here is a sample outline:

* PROJ Write Proposal

** TODO write introduction

* PROJ Clean Lab

* PROJ Get Birthday Present

** TODO get dad's hat size

Below are my settings regarding custom agenda views:

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
      '(("W" "Weekly Review"
         ((agenda "" ((org-agenda-ndays 7)))
          (stuck "") ;; review stuck projects
          (todo "PROJ") ;; review all projects
          (todo "SDMB") ;; review someday/maybe items
          (todo "WAIT"))) ;; review waiting items

        ("P" "Projects" tags-todo "LEVEL=1"
         ((org-agenda-overriding-header "List of Projects")))

        ("O" "Today-View"               ; like OF "due & flagged"
         ((agenda "Due or scheduled within next week"
                  ((org-agenda-ndays 7)
                   (org-agenda-start-on-weekday nil)
                   (org-agenda-overriding-header "\nDue or scheduled
within next week\n------------------\n")
                                        ; due within next week
          (tags-todo "+PRIORITY=\"A\""
                     ((org-agenda-overriding-header "\nHigh
                                        ; pseudo-flagged items

Neither "W" nor "P" shows all projects, but rather only the ones
without siblings. This is what I use as TODO kwds:

(setq org-todo-keywords '((sequence "TODO(t)" "WAIT(w@/!)" "|" "DONE(d!)")
                          (sequence "STRT(s!)" "|")
                          (sequence "|" "CNCL(address@hidden)")
                          (sequence "FXME(f)" "|" "FIXD(x!)")
                          (sequence "PROJ(p!)" "PRSC(u)" "PROH(o)" "|"
"PRDN(r!)" "PRCL(o@/!)")
                          (sequence "LIST(l)" "|")
                          (sequence "SDMB(m)" "|")))

And these are the agenda-relevant settings in custom.el:

 '(org-agenda-compact-blocks t)
 '(org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks (quote invisible))
 '(org-stuck-projects (quote ("+LEVEL=1/+PROJ-PRDN-PROH-SDMB" ("TODO"
"NEXT" "FXME" "STRT") nil "")))
