>From what I see in project.el, this is an API for defining a set of
directories. I'm not saying that Emacs does not need such an API, but I
would not call this a "project API". What about things like setting up
toolchains (compiler, linker, debugger), configurations (debug/release),
support for external build systems, setting up environment variables and
pre-processor symbols, and so on? I mean, this is the bread and butter
of projects in pretty much any IDE. Will you add this to project,el
eventually?  Otherwise, calling EDE an implementation of your generic
project API is pretty daring, IMHO.
