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. - Stephan
