Yes I see, I'm guilty of not reading the !help which covers this

All the main requirements seem to be already in place and I should be
able to use it in a project mode as is, and get a better appreciation
of the LoW and perhaps provide a better appraisal.

One further thought on the saving out of a project, seeing as the files
all get loaded at startup, they could be in an archive form.
Wether there is any advantage or not, I dont know. Maybe if there was
a lot of projects.
