Either way, the way it is now is hardly usable. It drastically
reduces my speed of operation because I have to look constantly all
over the place to figure out and make sure that I am editing the
correct document. On several occasions I lost data (temporary of

it is now. The tab idea is nice but Wing has a long way to go to make
| __init__.py | __init__.py |
| ../IssueTracker/content | ../SimpleBlog/content |
And like I said earlier: almost anything is better than it is now.
