As far as finding files or switching to other files:  In Wing 3.1 there's also
the Open From Project feature, which is a quick way to access files via the
keyboard -- use the key binding shown in the File menu then type a fragment.

Also, the command name for the emacs feature noted above is switch-document,
in case you want to try it w/ a custom key binding.
