In the future there'll only be one type of window, and it'll better 
serve single files and ad hoc scratch projects -- but there's currently 
no ETA. Probably it'll be 1.1, which is likely to see the light of day 
before christmas.

If you drag multiple files to the application icon, it creates a 
scratch project, i.e. groups the files in a single window, but doesn't 
require a specific project file.

Also, if you new a project (ctrl-command-n) you can drag the proxy icon 
of existing files to the project drawer -- so it's rather easy to 
create “projects”. But it'll improve though!

Kind regards Allan
