Ok, I tried project-find-regexp and project-find-file yesterday.

The main issue is that they are just too slow.

I'm mostly developing Firefox these days, which has a very large source

For project-find-file, I somewhat expected it to be slow, but I was
surprised that project-find-regexp also appeared to just hang ... I
interrupted it before it did anything.  Maybe it's also trying to
construct a file list?  (I didn't check.)  Would it be possible to cache
the file list and maybe watch the filesystem for additions?

I will try project-find-file some more and see if I have any quibbles
with it.

These would both be very nice to have...
