   A software project usually contains nomal directory and file

What you say is perfectly true.

However, i think that truth tends to lead programmers astray, so
that they grow "inwards" (to cater for the "norm", which over
time becomes ever more refined (restricted) in its definition),
and not "upwards" (to stretch the mind (and thus code that is
after all merely mindstuff writ stylishly) to consider what is
similar and what is different, in many (ideally, all) cases).

Of course, "perfect is the enemy of good" so they say, and one
line of code in the repo is worth two in *scratch*, so as always
it's a question of balance.

Anyway, glad to see this functionality added to Emacs.

 friends see eye to eye.
 always?  no.  but heart to heart:
 character distance.
