Thanks for that background.  Personally, as a mere user of `project.el`
I wonder about the meaning of "subproject".  Are we talking about two
*separate* projects that "happen" to be layed out in the filesystem in
such a way that one is in a subdir of the other, or are we really
talking about a situation where some project operations (but not all)
will operate on "the project and its subprojects", which would then beg
the question of how to decide which operations do that (and when).
