I've implemented this for 2.1 but it means that mapping .wpr 
extensions to launch Wing from a linux file manager needs to 
include the --new command line option to avoid the (possibly 
surprizing) behavior of reusing instances for newly opened 
projects.  Not a big deal, esp. since this was pretty much broken 
before unless --new was there.
