I don't think having commands to create a project is really
necessary.  If a project can be "created" by some external command,
like by placing some special file in the project root, or even by
defining a few Emacs variables, that is enough.

In Emacs?  Can you give examples of such existing projects, and how
users could use the commands we are discussing with those projects?
