Rather it completes on path components too, not only on file names.
Makes more difficult to match part of the file name when the same substring
occurs in the path.

Either prefix multifile- or project- is fine, but not both at the same time.
Or better just shorten to multi-.  We already have multi-isearch (not
supporting project yet).

I see that M-x project-find-regexp is like occur, so a better name would be
M-x project-occur.
