No, that's not there partly because the notion of a default project
is new in 2.0.1.  We should add that; thanks for the suggestion.

This preference is slated for removal (the fact that it's still there is
an oversight).  Wing now always reopens projects to their state at the
time they were closed.  You can Close All from the File menu to quickly
close all open files.

Yes, clarifying that is already on our list.  The semantics of it changed
when we made it essentially impossible to have no project open by adding
the default project in 2.0.1.

This may be a conflict with something on win2k.  I've made a note of it.  
You can remap the command from the User Interface / Keyboard / Custom Key
Bindings preference.  Select Insert to add a binding that will override
the default.  The command name is add_current_file_to_project and you just
press the key binding you want in the entry area for "Key".

Thanks for the feedback.
