This protocol of operations and what jobs they are supposed to do
is what defines he project instance data structure.  So that is
a good way to document the data structure.

However, I wonder if there are some data that we can expect every
project instace to have..  For instance, does every project instace
have a name?  Is there an operation to ask for its name?

What are the simple data items that every project instance should
