You can set up environment and other things in Project Properties (from 
the Project menu).

Currently there isn't support for replacing that w/ a script.  Although 
there are ways to write an extension script that runs when a project is 
opened, this won't help much in your case since the environment values 
are a combination of those found at startup and what you configure in 
Project Properties and in-process changes would otherwise be ignored.

One idea would be just to quit Wing when changing projects, and set up a 
script that runs the appropriate per-project setup and then runs Wing 
with the project file name on the command line.

Please let me know if none of this helps.
