... sort of, although it seems like a complex solution to work around what are 
fundamentally limitations in the architecture.  This leads to making the user 
interface more complex simply to keep the back-end simple, which always seems 
like a bad idea to me :-)

However, what you suggest -- if indeed possible, would address the problem.

This is sort of nice, actually, although I'd guess that the cases where 
subprojects are optional to the project would be few.  Indeed, I still have a 
problem with the mental image that foo is a separate project.  For me, it 
isn't.  It is the sourcecode to the project -- it IS the project.

This is just semantics, though, and wouldn't be a serious barrier.
