I think i've reported this before, but the fact that Wing displays  
project paths as relative to the .wpr file is really lame.  It  
basically forces me to store the .wpr  with or one dir up from the  
source code (or deal with several useless entries in the tree).  I'd  
rather store all my project files in one place, regardless of where  
the code actually lives.

Beyond that, +1 to disjoint directories in the same project.
