Yes, Carbon has file aliases which I can store -- I'm switching most
parts of the app to use aliases for 1.2, though I also plan to make
the project file redundant (so a project is just a folder).
And yes, currently files are saved in the project file as relative
paths, since I always intended for the structure that Chris outlined
-- it is possible to change on an item-by-item basis, but it's
probably easier just to recreate the project.
