For example, if you are in an Ada file that is not part of the current

project". That prevents the sort of error you describe above.

But all commands that use project information should get it from the
single current project, yes.

Ah, this is the distinction I was missing. The global project only affects unaffiliated files. I think I could agree with that.

There are two levels of "optional" here; `ede-current-project' could
always check the global var first; people who don't want that style just
leave it set to nil.

Or the single global variable could be one of a user-configurable list
of things that ede-current-project checks.

The logic I would expect is that the buffer local variable wins, and if it is empty, it checks the global project. That would prevent mistakes and provide flexibility. If you want the global value to win against the local value, that could be an option which I would avoid using. ;)

I tend to work across multiple projects at the same time because CEDET is a support library, so I test it with different other projects. Having to constantly select what is active would be a PITA for me.

Hmm. In addition, I would expect the Development | Load Project menu
command to set the global variable, but others won't. So that needs to
be configurable somehow. Ah; if ede-current-project is set to not check
the global variable, it doesn't matter if it gets set. That was easy :).

The load menu just makes sure the project has been loaded in, then you can use project browsers and such. Selecting the active project seems like a different feature. I'd want to see the suite of options before recommending what goes where.
