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.

But base file names can also have duplicates, right?

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).

OK, let me put it another way: "multifile" is just a package that implements a particular UI. It is in no way synonymous with "project". Maybe a better name for it would be something like bufferloop (suggestions welcome).

Does M-x project-find-regexp work in the same situation?

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

I can see where you're coming from, but we've already discussed that it has different behavior from Occur. And it uses different data sources.

I agree that some unification might be in order, but naming things the same won't cut it.
