The compaction code is only designed to prune attributes stored for files,
such a scroll position, selection range, breakpoints, etc.  It doesn't
actually prune files from the project list.  That's something that will be
supported in our planned auto-updating project entries (which will
add/remove files according to what's actually on disk).

The reason for not removing attributes or files automatically is if you
use a project in several places, it would be annoying to lose info in the
project just because you open it somewhere that is missing a set of files.
Attribute compaction isn't needed that often anyway... it's the lack of
auto-updating of the files listed in the project that seems to be more of
an annoyance in practice.
