What is the best way to run a subprocess in root of a project currently?

Right now I've made a small convenience macro for this:

(defmacro with-project-root (&rest body)
   "Dynamically bind default directory to project root."
   (declare (debug t) (indent 0))
   `(let ((default-directory (project-root (project-current))))

Then I can:

(defun elm-repl ()
   "Create a new buffer with Elm repl started and switch to it."
      (make-comint "Elm Repl" "elm" nil "repl"))))

It's as good a solution as any.

Otherwise, would this be something appropriate for
project.el to expose?

I'm not sure... It doesn't even save one line. Just shortens it.
