It would help if the header comment in project.el said something along
those lines.

There is a big difference between:

"provide an interface between projects and the rest of Emacs"


"provide a core API for implementing projects".

The current project.el header is unclear as to which it is intended to

I was assuming projects.el was the latter, and thus in competition with
EDE, projectile, etc.

If it's really the former, that puts a much different light on things;
it should be providing wrappers/adaptors for EDE, projectile, etc, so
grep, compile etc can use project information.

In particular, there should be no "xref-find-regexp"; instead, "grep"
and similar commands should be enhanced to optionally use project
functions to get the search path.
