Someone emailed me privately with a comment and I see the above is not 
very clear.  Much of the code I use but don't intend to modify is only 
reachable via the configured Python Path.  It's only libraries I may 
want to modify that I add to the project view.  Then they also show up 
in the set of project files searched from Search in Files, and they're 
in the Testing and version control views.

If I need to search through a library that isn't in my project, I create 
a new Search in Files tab that points to it with a directory/disk search 
rather than using Project Files search scope.
