There may be no need to "create" a project, for a particular backend. But a specialized backend (for instance, one for Emacs sources) will know the directory tree layout and where to get information from. In Emacs's case, for example, from find-func and TAGS files inside lisp/ and src/.

And how to combine the information from the different sources better.

E.g., how about adding to Emacs a few back-ends that support
widely used combinations of languages, like C and Lisp in our case?
