project-find-file and project-find-regexp are the main ones. Useful when... you want to visit a file within the current project, or search it for a regexp?

xref-query-replace-in-results could also be mentioned, given that it allows the user to replace the matches with some other string (both in project-find-regexp output, and in xref-find-references output).

Do we have in core any feature that provides back-end for the
project.el infrastructure?  It sounds like we only support VC as
back-end in project.el, is that true?

It's extensible via project-find-functions, which was the core design goal.

In the core, we have only two backends indeed: one using VC, and another for EDE.

Though I'm not sure if the latter has any users, and its implementation is very simplistic.
